This is our Law School

A California State Bar accredited program in a part-time evening format—for less than half the cost of traditional law schools. 
Keep your day job while you earn your J.D. and graduate as a practice-ready attorney, without traditional law school debt.

Our graduates earn the Juris Doctor degree and are academically eligible to sit for the California Bar Examination. Juris Doctor students learn more than the theory behind the law; they write contracts, prepare courtroom documents and complete an internship under the supervision of practicing legal professionals - learning skills that graduates of many law schools are first exposed to only on the job.

Founded more than 40 years ago to expand opportunities for legal education, today the Colleges of Law are widely recognized as one of the state’s premier regional law schools. Our part-time, evening law program allows students to prepare for a rewarding professional career without abandoning their job and family responsibilities-and to graduate without the debt they would accrue at many other law schools.

At the Colleges of Law, our highest priority is you—our students. We are dedicated to ensuring that your law school experience is both academically and experientially rewarding. Our bar pass rates frequently surpass those of most other State Bar-accredited law schools, and all of our students gain hands-on experience—and valuable professional contacts—through pro bono internships within our local legal communities.
