We remain faithful to our original goal of providing this opportunity for those who need a night program to fulfill their dream. Additionally we have deliberately kept tuition affordable and offer an extraordinary value for a respected and excellent legal education. The School of Law attracts recent college graduates as well as those returning to college after several years. Many of these students hold full-time jobs while pursuing their studies. Even so, admission requirement standards are maintained. Law students earn a Juris Doctor degree in four or five years of evening study, which qualifies them to take the California Bar Examination leading to the practice of law in California.
