Are you actually in this situation, or is this hypothetical? Because if it hasn't happened yet, don't go this route.

Why do you need another law degree.

Yes, I'm in this position. I don't want to live in CA. a second longer, or practice 5 years to get admitted elsewhere. I hate it here.

So you spent four years on a non-accredited, then another year on an accredited LLM? I dunno, I'd just roll with the LLM if I were you. Spending another three years + tons of money to go to law school again?

Probably wont affect your cycle much at all, positively or negatively.
