ALU Law School Disclosures

The School of Law is registered with the Committee of Bar Examiners (CBE) of the State Bar of California as an unaccredited distance learning law school. ALU’s authority to grant a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree, which qualifies graduates to take the California Bar Examination and obtain admission to the practice of law in California, is through the Committee of Bar Examiners. ALU students must pass the First-Year Law Students’ Examination (FYLSX) at the end of the first year of law school study.

 

ALU provides public disclosures about the State Bar of California’s guidelines for unaccredited distance learning law schools, the online Juris Doctor program and bar exam passage rates.

 

The State Bar of California

 

Created by the state legislature in 1927, the State Bar is a public corporation within the judicial branch of government, serving as an arm of the California Supreme Court. All State Bar members are officers of the court. Membership in The State Bar of California affords attorneys the right and privilege of practicing law in this state.

 

Law school students must register as students with the State Bar of California. Registration consists of the filing of a form that inquires into the applicant’s age, addresses, general education and legal education. The registration form must be completed accurately under penalty of perjury.

 

Registration forms are available directly from the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California from their offices or on their website (see below). Potential students with any questions may contact the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California at:

Business & Professions Code Section 6061.7(a) Information Report

 

As of January 1, 2017, pursuant to California Business & Professions Code section 6061.7(a), Abraham Lincoln University is providing its Information Report, Reporting Year 2017 disclosure form.

 

Bar Program Eligibility

 

After graduation from the Juris Doctor (J.D.), students are eligible to sit for the California Bar Examination. Upon successful completion of the California Bar Examination, the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam, meeting all applicable moral character requirements, and not being in arrears with family support obligations, School of Law graduates can become members of the State Bar of California and be eligible to practice in California and Federal courts.

 

Every law student who intends to be a general applicant for admission to practice law in California must register with the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California no later than 90 days after he or she begins the study of law and Bar preparation courses to obtain California Bar eligibility.

 

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

 

Students enrolled in the J.D. 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 4, Division 1, Chapter 1 Rule 4.3(l) of the Rules of the State Bar of California 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 J.D. degree program. If the dismissed student subsequently passes the examination, the student is eligible for re-enrollment in this law school’s J.D. program, but will receive credit for only one year of legal study.

 

Study at, or graduation from, this law school may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or to 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.

 

Bar Exam Passage Rates

 

As of April 1, 2016, more than 140 graduates of ALU have passed the California General Bar Examinations. The number and passage results of ALU Law students who have taken the First-Year Law Students’ Examination and General Bar Examination in the past five years, along with cumulative California General Bar Exam passing rates, are shown below.

 

Due to a new law that went into effect January 1, 2016, subjecting the State Bar of California to the California Public Records Act, Abraham Lincoln University is no longer being provided data pass/fail statistics of respective students and graduates after each administration of the exams in 2016. According to a September 8, 2016 memorandum issued by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California, disclosure statements of registered law schools are to report all pass/fail data published through 2015, until further notice. The charts below, which disclose 2015 data, meet ALU’s disclosure requirements to the public at this time.
