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.
