State Bar of California JD and EJD Disclosure Statements

JD Program

The method of instruction at this law school for the Juris Doctor (JD) degree program is principally by technological means including interactive classes.

Students enrolled in the JD degree program at this law school who successfully complete the first year of law study must pass the First-Year Law Students’ Examination required by Business and Professions Code §6060(h) and Title IV, Division 1 of the Rules of the State Bar of California (Admission Rules), as part of the requirements to qualify to take the California Bar Examination. A student who passes the First-Year Law Students’ Examination within three (3) administrations of the Examination after first becoming eligible to take it will receive credit for all legal studies completed to the time the Examination is passed. A student who does not pass the Examination within three (3) administrations of the Examination after first becoming eligible to take it must be promptly disqualified from the law school’s JD degree program. If the dismissed student subsequently passes the Examination, the student is eligible for re-enrollment in this law school’s JD degree program, but will receive credit for only 1 year of legal study.

Study at, or graduation from, this law school may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or satisfy the requirements for admission to practice in jurisdictions other than California. A student intending to seek admission to practice law in a jurisdiction other than California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding the legal education requirements in that jurisdiction for admission to the practice of law.

It may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or satisfy the requirements for admission to the practice of law in any other jurisdiction. A student intending to seek admission to practice law should contact the admitting authority in the jurisdiction where the student intends to qualify to sit for the bar examination or for admission to practice to receive information regarding the legal education requirements in that jurisdiction for admission to the practice of law.
