Abraham Lincoln University has been a prominent fixture in Los Angeles since 1996, when ALU was founded as one of California's and the nation's pioneering online law schools. In addition to the flagship law school program, ALU offers complementary diploma programs and associate, bachelor's and master's degrees in areas of paralegal studies, legal studies, criminal justice, business administration, information technology and general studies.
Abraham Lincoln University's School of Law delivers a standard legal curriculum in a unique way, allowing students to complete a full law school education online. The University provides distance learning opportunities for those interested in obtaining a legal education outside of the traditional three-year full-time or four-year part-time ABA mode.

The addition of undergraduate degree programs creates an educational bridge for students who do not have the required bachelor's degree for entry into the law school. Paralegal, criminal justice and legal studies programs provide a pre-law school curriculum that will ease a student's transition into the demanding law school curriculum.
Undergraduate and graduate students who do not wish to pursue a law degree may choose from a variety of degree programs in general studies, criminal justice, business, information technology and paralegal and legal studies.
By providing access to online education, Abraham Lincoln University continues to honor the great men and women who put America's legal and political systems in place. ALU's success can only be measured in the success of its students.
Abraham Lincoln University is accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission. The Accrediting Commission is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency and is a recognized member of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
