Online Law School Information

California School of Law is registered as a distance-learning online law school with the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California. Registration with the Committee permits California School of Law JD graduates, who meet the regulatory requirements, to apply for admission to the State Bar of California and attend law school online. California School of Law is not approved by the American Bar Association. The ABA Standards for the Approval of Law Schools currently do not allow for JD programs that are delivered by online law schools.


Accredited Online JD: The ABA Standards for the Approval of Law Schools (www.abanet.org/legaled; click on Standards) currently do not allow for the approval of a JD or paralegal programs offered through distance education. ABA Standard 306 allows an ABA-approved law school to award 12 credits toward the JD degree through distance education courses. California School of Law continues to work to expand the ABA Standards’ acceptance of distance education and online law school. Given the process that is involved in changing these rules, however, it is unlikely that the Standards will be revised in the near future to allowlaw school online.


California School of Law's unique method of instruction utilizing virtual classrooms where students and faculty can see and speak with one another, without a fixed classroom facility places the law school in the Distance Learning school category of the California State Bar. The State Bar of California and the American Bar Association (ABA) do not accredit distance learning schools. California School of Law is registered as Distance Learning law schools and the Juris Doctor (JD) program is designed to meet the legal education requirements of the Committee of Bar Examiners for Distance Learning law schools.


BAR ADMISSION

California School of Law online law school operates under the rules and guidelines established by the Committee. Study at, or graduation from, California School of Law online law school may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or satisfy the requirements for admission to practice law in jurisdictions other than California. A student seeking admission to practice law in a jurisdiction other than California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding the legal education requirement for admission to the practice of law.


Prospective students can contact the California School of Law online law school for information on which states allow our graduates to sit for the bar exam.


California School of Law is proud of the legal education program that it develop. Our program is distinctive because the program is delivered completely in a distance learning environment using cutting edge technology. The professors and students interact in a live online classroom, where everyone can see and speak with each other to discus and debate the cases and the law.


Our commitment to students is to improve the career paths and bar admissions opportunities of California School of Law graduates in states outside of California. In working toward these objectives, we welcome any and all opportunities to work with state bar admissions authorities, to develop standards that will assure high-quality law school online that is affordable and provides access to legal education to those who cannot feasibly attend a three-year residential program or who would learn accredited online JD more effectively in a program such as California School of Law’s online law school program and Accredited Online JD.
