I was reading alot of these posts, and I am not here to promote any particular bookstore but all theses post can be answered in this 1 book------It has every Non ABA JD, tons of brand new ABA Online LLM programs from many schools, overseas online LLB's and LLM's, and talks about each bar exam with a non aba jd, and the DC bar process and how DC accepts LLM credits for their 26 credit requirement.  Wash DC Bar will take any Non ABA jd Degree as long as you have 26 bar subject credits.  With all these new aba online programs, its quite possible to gain the 26 credits online if you look around, but many in person LLm programs offer JD electives, so if you were to go to a school like Novus where you can complete your JD program in 2 years, you can take a 1 year in person LLM(and many schools accept Non aba jd degrees into their LLms), you can sit for the DC bar.  The book states LLm credits are acceptable for dc as long as they are bar subjects, but I called the DC bar anyway and spoke to the director.  HE verified that DC accepts LLM credits along with Non aba jd degrees.  Anyway, I would say to check out the book at that bookstore if some of you are really stuck with alot of these questions.  I picked my school, already have my aba school online llm lined up, and know my route, instead of spending hourse searching on google and waiting for replies on message boards. 

There are many ABA Schools that will accept non aba jd students. Thomas jefferson is aba approved and they accept any of the Ca Distance learning law school Jd's into their program. Plus, many in person LLM programs will also accept you into their JD program.

Americas Legal Bookstore has a new book on their front Page, it details all the Non ABA Law schools etc, but there is a chapter completely on ABA Online Programs. Its not just THomas Jefferson anyomore.  If you are looking at some ABA credits, or wanting an ABA degree to go along with your resume, schools like U of Alabama, Stetson, Loyola Chicago, Nova Southeastern, Cooley, and many more ABA Schools have completely online LLM programs.  Also, many of them have some bar eligible courses.  Thomas Jefferson used to be at St Thomas in Miami and was the only aba school before with an online program.  I bought a copy and was truly surprised to see all these new programs now available.
