Why should it get worse?

Our Australian system is probably more convoluted that that of the USA, given that it draws upon both the Westminster (wigs and gowns) and USA (Perry Mason) systems.
But it is usually fair, and often makes sense.
I tear my hair at the concepts of:
plea-bargaining,
probable cause,
preponderance of evidence, and
three strikes you're out.

Maybe the USA should reform its legal system by eliminating elected judges?

I wish him much luck, again - and encourage him to achieve his goal.

Indeed, why? Not only convoluted, but unfair...very unfair, *sigh*.

Information conveyed via corrlinks. I thank you. My friend thanks you. His family thanks you.

Question: why is the USA legal system so convoluted?

It must be taken into account that the American Bar Association has not accreditted any correspondence law degree, so he would not be allowed to pass the Bar examination, if that would be his objective upon release. However, California does allow it (rarely, but it has happened) and so you will find some correspondence law schools (it must be noted that maybe some of them focus more in online courses). As to which one has a better reputation, I would not be able to provide you with a good answer, so maybe you could make some research about them. Here is a list:

-Abraham Lincoln University School of Law
-American Heritage University
-American International School of Law
-The Taft Law School
-Concord Law School
-Northwestern Californian University
-Oak Brook College of Law
-The St Francis School of Law
-Internqtional Pacific Law School
-Md Kirk School of Law

I also recommend you to look up and suggest him this:

Blackstone Career Institute – Information for Prison Inmates and Their Sponsors

It is a well know paralegal program for inmates. He might find it intersting as well.
I hope this is useful. If there is more needed, do not hesitate to ask, I will be glad to make a further research.

Good luck :)
