I don't get why Jimmy didn't get a JD (juris doctorate) from a small no-name uni, but went with American Samoa. To practice in New Mexico, they would have to be accredited by the state's Bar Association, however I don't know NM's rules for that. Could it be for comedic effect? Most lawyers don't have a Master's degree as us in the States think of it. A JD is considered a terminal degree like a PhD, MFA, MD, etc. Most here get their Bachelor's degree (takes 4 years unless you're Super Chuck or also attend classes in the summers) and three years for law school. I guess I associate LLM with British Commonwealth countries. I have friends who are lawyers. Maybe I can ask.
