If you are considering a professional Juris Doctor degree, Abraham Lincoln University may be the school for you. ALU School of Law provides an online distance learning law school program that delivers standard legal curriculum in a unique, innovative way. The program is designed to cater to the needs of non-traditional prospective law school students who work full-time jobs or have other commitments that might make studying at a traditional three-year full-time program or traditional four-year part-time program difficult.
Abraham Lincoln University School of Law prepares online law school prospective students to sit for the California State Bar Exam just as any other law school in California might, but the educational methods are quite different, even from other online law schools. Students at ALU School of Law can take classes in three different ways:
The various class options separate ALU from other online distance learning law schools, but they are not the only way in which ALU is different. Abraham Lincoln University also helps busy students by using a program that focuses on one class at a time, instead of having students take multiple classes at once. This allows students to be more focused and efficient in their studies, and reduces study time for our students with other full-time commitments. Our experienced staff and faculty are available to give advice for prospective students on which method to choose.
Abraham Lincoln University is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC). 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.
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, 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.
