Santa Barbara, CA – Santa Barbara, California based California School of Law announced today that
it will no longer require the LSAT or a Bachelor’s degree from applicants to the school. The American Bar
Association Standard 306 allows an ABA-approved law school to award up to 12 credits toward the JD degree
for distance education courses, but does not set any guidelines or standards for online law schools. With the
ABA having no means to accredit online schools there is no longer any reason to require either the LSAT or a
Bachelor’s degree. The ABA is reviewing its accreditation standards, including “Standard 306,” which applies
to [online |distance learning] law schools.
California School of Law officials expect this change to its application process to increase
interest in attending law school and will also allow many people previously unable to apply
to become accepted. The school does however require a minimum of 60 college credits.
California School of Law is one of the only online law schools to provide truly live video classes, where all involved can see and speak to each other.
About The California School of Law
The California School of Law
offers its students a wonderful online experience. State of the art technology is utilized to provide live, video conferencing between faculty and students, creating a virtual classroom. The first time you are asked to brief a case or make a legal argument before your professor and classmates, you will feel how real the virtual classroom experience is at the California School of Law. I believe this educational experience, offered from the convenience of any online computer, has no parallel in the field of legal education.
