I've made several 30 minute connections in the US but it's always tight. 1hr is better if you can, especially as often they'll start boarding 45-60 minutes before departure.

I would never risk this too-tight connection at LAX unless you have it IN WRITING from a supervisor that UA will cover 3 meals and overnight accommodations if you miss the second flight. Since that guarantee will never be made, call UA and get an earlier/different flight to LAX. Because I don't run through airports well I don't like to book connections at LAX under 2 hours, legal or not.

30mins is a little insane no matter what airport you're looking at especially LAX! You'd have to have all your stars in the universe lined up to make that one work! Good luck :)
