The Juris Doctor (JD) degree is a traditional law school program that is designed to prepare students for entry into the legal field, particularly the practice of law in the State of California and within the Federal Court System.
This program allows students to receive comprehensive instruction beginning with Contracts, Torts, and Criminal Law, and upon successful completion of the First Year Law Students’ Exam (FYLSX), continues through intermediate and upper-level legal topics. The main objective of the School of Law program is to provide students with a strong background in the legal profession and to become a successful attorney.
The 2018 ABA's State Bar Admissions Requirements Guide provides annually updated information on bar admission requirements in all U.S. jurisdictions, including a directory of state bar admission agencies. It is published in collaboration with the American Bar Association and a copy can be reviewed here.
This is a one of a kind university where the faculty creates a caring environment where the students do well and succeed. They act expeditiously with all requests and are really concerned. I am very happy to be a law school student.
Love this school and can't want to be an alumni and represent this school!!
The administrative staff are beyond supportive and I am very confident that it is because of the changes that have taken place that I am being able to progress in this arena.
