Master of Legal Studies Disclosure
The M.L.S. program does not qualify graduates to sit for California’s Bar Examination, nor does it satisfy requirements for admission to practice law in California. Prospective students who wish to practice law should consider the J.D. program after carefully reviewing the J.D. program information in this section. Please read the following statement, which is provided in compliance with State Bar requirements:
Except as provided in Rule 4.30 of the Admissions Rules (Legal education in a foreign state or country), completion of a professional law degree program at this law school other than the Juris Doctor degree does not qualify a student to take the California Bar Exam or satisfy the requirements for admission to practice law in California. It may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or to satisfy 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 jurisdictions where the student intends to qualify to sit for the bar examination or to be admitted to practice for information regarding their legal education requirements.
