What Are the Colleges of Law All About? What we’re all about is you – the talented, inquisitive, highly motivated individual who is inspired to meet the challenge of a professional career in law.
Admission to Practice Law in California Widely considered among the best regional law programs in California, the Santa Barbara & Ventura Colleges of Law have been accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of The State Bar of California since the 1970s. Graduates are academically qualified to take the Bar Examination in California. Admission to the practice of law within the state of California is governed by the Office of Admissions of The State Bar. Details are available at www.calbar.ca.gov.
The Santa Barbara & Ventura Colleges of Law is a nonprofit educational institution with campuses in two of Southern California’s most desirable coastal communities. Each campus is part of a close-knit legal community in which an atmosphere of professionalism and civility prevails.
As the 21st century unfolds, our rapidly changing society needs clientcentered, practice-ready attorneys. So, our stimulating curriculum integrates theory with practice, blending traditional courses with practical skills training in research, writing, negotiation and oral advocacy. Each student also gains real-world legal experience by completing a 65-hour pro bono internship under the supervision of a judge or attorney. This requirement highlights an attorney’s ethical obligation to provide pro bono service while preparing students to meet the challenges of day-to-day law practice.
Our Ventura campus was founded in 1969 by a group of local attorneys and judges who sought to provide an opportunity for local residents to obtain law degrees without leaving their homes and jobs. Six years later, a legal educator and attorney founded the Santa Barbara campus. In 1978 the two schools merged and today we’re known as one of California’s premier regional law schools. Our reputation has grown as our graduates have proven themselves to be well-trained legal professionals able to serve the needs of individual clients, businesses, nonprofit organizations and governmental entities throughout the state.
Students may, if they wish, earn a Certificate of Concentration by focusing their elective energies in one of four diverse fields: criminal, business, estate planning and family law. To earn the Juris Doctor degree students must successfully complete 84 semester units. Although our program is considered part-time because attendance is generally required only three nights a week, students are able to complete a legal education in 3-½ to 4 years.
Admission to Practice Law Outside California
The Colleges of Law are committed to providing the opportunity for a solid legal education to qualified applicants. In addition to graduates of four-year and community colleges, and applicants with at least 60 semester units of academic college credits, exceptionally well-qualified individuals without such college credentials may be accepted into our program as “special students.” Transfer students from other law schools are also eligible for admission, providing they meet certain requirements. The Colleges do not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, age, religion, national or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, or prior military service in admissions, employment or student services/ activities.
Both the Ventura and the Santa Barbara campuses have been accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of The State Bar of California for over 25 years. The Colleges are founding members of the Association of California Accredited Law Schools (CALS), an organization representing the law schools accredited by The State Bar of California. In keeping with our mission to offer high-quality yet affordable legal education, the Colleges have not sought nor do we intend to seek accreditation by the American Bar Association.
Philosophy of Admissions
Accreditations and Memberships
Graduates of the Colleges desiring to practice law in states other than California should be aware that most states require graduation from a law school approved or accredited by the American Bar Association or approved or accredited by the state supreme court or examining committee as a prerequisite to taking the Bar Examination in that state. Study at, or graduation from, this law school may not qualify a student to take the Bar Examination or be admitted to practice law in jurisdictions other than California. A student who intends to seek admission to practice law outside of California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding its education and admission requirements.
Do I Qualify for Admission?
The Special Student
Applicants are considered for admission in one of three categories, as defined by The State Bar of California.
The Colleges of Law admit students from diverse backgrounds so as to promote understanding in the classroom and broaden the opportunity for access to the legal profession. We consider several factors including academic grade point averages and, in some cases, LSAT scores. Other criteria may weigh heavily in the Admissions Committee’s decision, such as the applicant’s life experience, maturity, moral character, ability to communicate, employment, and volunteer activities.
●● An associate’s degree with a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA or a score on the LSAT normally in the 50th percentile or above; or ●● A minimum of 60 semester (or 90 quarter) units in academic subjects, awarded by a qualifying institution. (Applicants lacking a degree should contact the Admissions Office about eligibility.)
If you do not meet these criteria but have valuable life experience, your application may be considered by the Admissions Committee on a case-by-case basis. Applicants with a cumulative GPA below 2.0 are not eligible for admission.
de n t l Stu
●● A bachelor’s degree with a minimum 2.7 cumulative grade point average (GPA) or a score on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) normally in the 50th percentile or above; or

We will consider you for admission as a regular student if you have:

The Regular Student
If you do not meet the academic requirements for admission as a regular student but are at least 21, you may apply as a special student. Applicants in this category must be personally interviewed by the Dean and provide, in addition to the application materials required of all applicants, the following: ●● A minimum LSAT score in the 50th percentile or above; ●● Scores of at least “50” on College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests as required by the State Bar of California; and
What About Finances?
●● Two letters of recommendation.
In keeping with the Colleges’ not-for-profit mission of making a legal education affordable, tuition at the Colleges is among the lowest of California-accredited law schools and less than half that of programs offered at most traditional private law schools. Still, a quality education costs money, and for some that can pose a hardship. Fortunately, options are available, including private loans, legal community scholarships and the Colleges’ deferred tuition program, which allows students to pay their tuition over the course of an entire semester or session. Eligible veterans may qualify to receive benefits for study at the Colleges, including “Post-9/11” payments.
After completing the first-year curriculum, a special student is required to take The State Bar’s First-Year Law Students’ Examination (FYLSX). See our website for details about CLEP and FYLSX requirements.
The Transfer Student You may apply to transfer from another law school into the Colleges of Law if you meet all admission requirements as either a “regular” or “special” student. You must provide a letter from the Dean of your prior law school, stating that you are in good standing and eligible without condition to continue law studies. If you lack such good standing or are not eligible to continue without condition, your application must be approved by both the Admissions and Academic Standards Committees; such approval is rarely given. Transfer credit may be available for prior law studies. Please check our website for details.
On our website you will find details about current tuition, fees, cost of books, and tuition refund policies. (In special cases, such as when students receive veterans benefits while attending the Colleges, where state and federal law may require a different schedule of refunds, the amount of refundable tuition will be as provided in such laws.)
Acceptance to the Colleges is not guaranteed merely because an applicant meets the minimum admission requirements. All admissions decisions are within the Colleges’ sole discretion.
What Would I Study? Our students experience a curriculum emphasizing the essential components of an outstanding legal education – one that marries fundamental legal principles with the practical skills needed for effective client representation. We blend a rigorous academic approach with real-world experience, bridging the gap between classroom and courtroom.
Our Classes Classes within the Colleges are large enough to promote vigorous discussion but small enough to allow our intellectually inquisitive students to create positive networks with their professors and fellow students. Average course enrollment is about 30 students. Most regularly scheduled lecture courses meet once a week for three hours with two to three hours of outside preparation expected for each hour of class time.
Our Approach to Learning In the classroom, students have the opportunity to actively engage in lecture and discussion. Class sessions emphasize “case studies” that really help bring the law to life. Students prepare for class by reading, analyzing and “briefing” court opinions in actual cases. “Briefing” is a process of taking notes on various aspects of each opinion, such as the facts, reasoning and decision reached by the court that issued the opinion. During class, the professor and students talk about these “briefed” cases so the students can firmly grasp the legal principles upon which the decisions were based. The professor often poses hypothetical variations on the facts to explore whether the court’s conclusion would change if the facts were different. From such discussions, students learn both principles of substantive law and analytical techniques for resolving legal problems.
Students also receive instruction in a variety of practical skills, including legal research and writing, client counseling, trial practice, negotiation and alternative methods of dispute resolution. These courses largely emphasize “learning by doing,” providing students the opportunity to develop lawyering skills by performing tasks that are routinely undertaken by practicing attorneys.
Class Scheduling The Colleges operate on a semester system, with two 15-week semesters (plus study and examination weeks) offered in the fall and spring, and a 10-week required Summer session. Students generally attend classes three nights per week, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Summer electives may occasionally be offered on Saturdays. More detailed information can be found at www. collegesoflaw.org.
Each Student’s Challenge The ultimate responsibility for acquiring legal knowledge and proficient skills rests with our students. To be successful in law study, each student must demonstrate a strong commitment, by keeping up with reading assignments and attending class fully prepared to engage in lively discussion. A student’s dedication and enthusiasm will heavily influence the quality of the experience at this or any other law school. At the Colleges, students work together in a cooperative atmosphere. Many students form informal study groups for continued study and discussion outside the structured academic program, although doing so is seldom required. Faculty and staff are available to offer guidance on organizing effective study groups.
Legal Internship To provide students with hands-on preparation for law practice, each student must earn at least one unit of academic credit in our law school’s highly regarded Legal Internship Program. After successfully completing their first-year coursework and Legal Research, students have the opportunity to learn by doing, as they interview clients, prepare legal documents, perform legal research, or assist in trial preparation under the supervision of judges or experienced attorneys. Students may earn up to eight internship units. Third- or fourth-year students may also apply for certification under the Rules for the Practical Training of Law Students of The State Bar of California. The rules permit students to give legal advice and appear in court when under the direct supervision of a qualified attorney.
Richard Abbe Moot Court Competition Each summer, students who elect to enroll in Moot Court will draft briefs and argue a criminal appeal based on an actual trial transcript, with the guidance of an experienced criminal attorney/ faculty member. The course culminates in an intermural competition held at the Court of Appeal in Ventura, where the late Richard Abbe served as a justice. Three justices of the Second Appellate District, Sixth Division preside over the competition.
What Would I Study? Bar Examination Guidance Faculty and staff at the Colleges share a deep commitment to helping our students succeed on the California Bar Examination. From Orientation through the fourth year, we offer information and guidance on Bar Exam preparation, including group informational presentations, workshops and panel discussions on successful strategies. Our required curriculum covers each Bar-tested subject. It also includes Bar Studies, an innovative course designed to help students understand how to meet the intellectual and time-management challenges of California’s three-day, multi-format test. Information related to our graduates’ California Bar Examination pass rates can be found at The State Bar’s website, www. calbar.ca.gov/admissions.
Required Courses Most required courses are offered in a set pattern during the fall and spring semesters, generally for 3 units of credit. These courses emphasize traditional core subjects including those tested on the California Bar Examination. Three required, 2-unit skills courses are offered every summer: Legal Research, Legal Writing and Bar Studies.
Elective Courses While our academic year courses emphasize fundamentals, our elective courses give students a chance to sample some of the legal specialties that make law practice so satisfying. Elective offerings are rotated based on student interest and availability of instructors who are experts in their subfields. Thus, we do not offer each elective every year and some courses may not be offered during the time a given student is enrolled. Elective courses carry from 1 to 2 units of credit. Check our website for course descriptions and other details.
Legal Analysis & Writing Contracts 1 & 2 Torts 1 & 2 Criminal Law Legal Research
Second Year Civil Procedure 1 & 2 Real Property 1 & 2 Community Property Business Associations Legal Writing
Certificates of Concentration
Evidence 1 & 2 Professional Responsibility Constitutional Law 1 & 2 Wills & Trusts Remedies Bar Studies
The Colleges offer students the exciting opportunity to earn a Certificate of Concentration in one of four areas: Business Law, Criminal Law, Estate Planning and Family Law. To qualify, a student must successfully complete degree requirements as well as eight elective units in his or her chosen concentration. Students who earn a certificate are particularly well prepared to enter an employment market that favors law graduates who are well grounded in both fundamental skills and emerging legal trends.
Fourth Year Constitutional Criminal Procedure Advanced Legal Writing Trial Practice Trial Evidence Statutory Interpretation Also Required: 1 unit of Legal Internship (taken anytime after passing Legal Research)
What Support Would I Have? Student Services
Books and Materials
Academic Advisor Program
Required books and materials are generally offered for sale during registration but may be purchased elsewhere.
We emphasize the fundamentals of effective law study in our first-semester course, Legal Analysis & Writing. Building on that strong foundation, Advisors provide group tutorials and individual counseling, outside the curriculum, to help students reach their academic potential. Participation is generally voluntary but may be required of students in academic difficulty.
Disabled Student Resources Both campuses are accessible to students with physical disabilities, with handicapped parking adjacent to both law school buildings. Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact the Assistant Dean at the campus where enrolled to make timely and appropriate arrangements for accommodations regarding physical access, examination conditions and other services.
Employment Assistance The Colleges do not provide placement services but students often find employment through less formal means. Job announcements are posted on campus boards and circulated by email. Students may learn of openings from faculty, staff and alumni, and through internships, alumni/student events, and local Bar groups.
Faculty members, including Academic Advisors, are available to meet with students by appointment. Students are encouraged to confer often with their professors as part of their law school experience.
Student Bar Association (SBA) Supported by fees paid upon registration, the SBA at each campus sponsors social and peer mentoring events. The SBA also assists with annual events such as First Year Orientation and the Awards Banquet.
Student Lounge Delta Theta Phi
At each campus, a student lounge provides a comfortable meeting place to talk, study or just relax. Amenities include vending machines and a microwave oven.
Interested students may join a chapter of Delta Theta Phi, an international fraternity founded in 1913 to promote legal scholarship and the legal profession.
Study Facilities Law Libraries Each campus has a law library with quiet study space and convenient access to legal resources, including federal and California cases and statutes, encyclopedias, digests, treatises, periodicals and practice guides. Each library has a copier/scanner and computer workstations for word processing and Internet access.
Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF)
Quiet space for study, by individual students or those in groups, is available on both campuses during regular office hours and on weekends when the library is open.
At the Ventura campus, SALDF sponsors special events for the legal community and outreach programs to advance the public’s knowledge of animal laws.
All students are provided passwords to Westlaw®, an online legal research database. Through Westlaw®, students use TWEN® course management software to access course materials such as syllabi and assignments. Examples of past exams and sample answers are also posted on TWEN®.
Judges and attorneys address students on a broad range of law-related topics such as career development, civility and law practice specializations.
Our Student Body We take tremendous pride in the diversity of our student body, which is comprised of people from all walks of life. The majority of students at the Colleges are working adults; some are employed in law-related fields but most have other backgrounds. Many students are returning to school after a number of years away from academic pursuits, while some come to the Colleges immediately after attaining undergraduate or graduate degrees. Current combined enrollment is approximately 220 students and is divided almost evenly between men and women.
How Do I Apply?
Letter(s) of Recommendation
Our goal is to provide our students with an exemplary legal education in an environment that fills their lifestyle needs. During the admission process we work closely with prospective students to demystify the experience as much as possible. Applications are evaluated on a “rolling” basis, so we encourage early submission of the application and supporting materials.
Special student applicants must submit scores from the Law School Admission Test and College Level Examination Program tests as well as arrange for a personal interview. Transfer student applicants must submit a letter of standing and unconditional eligibility to continue from the Dean of each prior law school. It is in your best interest to be completely candid and truthful in all materials you submit to the Colleges. Your application materials are not only vital to our admission decision, but also subject to review by The State Bar of California when it evaluates your moral character as a candidate for admission to law practice. Applicants need only apply to one campus.
All applicants to the Colleges of Law are required to submit the following: ✔✔ a completed application form. ✔✔ a non-refundable application fee of $50. ✔✔ a personal statement of three pages in length. ✔✔ one or two letters of recommendation, depending on your admission category. ✔✔ certified transcripts of academic work. ✔✔ score on the Law School Admission Test, if taken.
✔✔ be an original letter addressed to the Colleges, and ✔✔ specifically address the applicant’s suitability for the study of law. We suggest that you seek a recommendation from a supervisor in paid or volunteer work, a former instructor, an attorney or other legal professional, or some other unrelated individual who knows you well.
We require transcripts to establish that you have met the pre-legal education prerequisites for admission. The Admissions Office will provide a preliminary evaluation of your academic qualifications based upon unofficial or “open” transcripts. However, your application is not complete, and you cannot be admitted to the Colleges, until we receive certified (official) transcripts in sealed envelope(s) from the school(s) where you attempted coursework.
In most cases, where potential for success at the Colleges is indicated by an applicant’s undergraduate record, work and life experiences, a Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score is not required for admission. In other instances, however, an applicant must achieve an LSAT score normally at the 50th percentile or above to be considered for admission. Because a correlation has been shown between LSAT scores and first-year law school grades, we encourage all applicants to take this test, after diligent preparation, as one means of self-assessment.
Applicants with a bachelor’s degree must provide a certified transcript from the school awarding the degree and from any subsequent school, including law school, where coursework was later attempted or completed. Applicants without a bachelor’s degree must provide a certified transcript from each college, university and law school attended. Applicants educated outside the United States must provide an evaluation from a credential evaluation service that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services. The evaluation must be a “detailed” report that includes a categorized listing of courses taken with individual grade equivalents and overall grade point average. (Foreign students are not eligible for student visas.)
We want to know a bit about each prospective student – where you’ve been, what drives you, and why you’re inspired to earn a law degree. That’s why we ask you to provide a three-page personal statement discussing your: ✔✔ academic qualifications ✔✔ work and life experiences relevant to the study and practice of law
This statement is an integral part of the admission process and is used by the Admissions Committee in evaluating your writing skills, motivation and suitability for the study of law.
College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests must be taken by applicants who have not completed enough undergraduate units to other-wise qualify for admission as “regular” students.
Personal Interview You may be asked to meet with a member of the Admissions Committee for a personal interview and/or to take a college-administered writing examination at the committee’s discretion. If you apply as a “special student,” you must meet with the Dean. We invite all prospective students to confer with a member of our Admissions Office staff, in person or by telephone, to discuss any questions relating to the admission process.
✔✔ reasons for wanting to study law.
A regular or transfer applicant must provide one letter of recommendation from a person qualified to comment upon those personal qualities that make the applicant a good candidate for law school. A “special student” applicant must submit two such letters. Each letter must:
