WASC Senior College and University Commission

Lincoln Law School of California has applied for Eligibility from the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). WSCUC has reviewed the application and determined that the School is eligible to proceed with an application for Candidacy and Initial Accreditation. A determination of Eligibility is not a formal status with the WASC Senior College and University Commission, nor does it ensure eventual accreditation. It is a preliminary finding that the institution is potentially accreditable and can proceed within five years of its Eligibility determination to be reviewed for Candidacy or Initial Accreditation status with the Commission. Questions about Eligibility may be directed to the institution or to WSCUC at wascsr@wascsenior.org or (510) 748-9001.

California Bar Exam pass rates

We pride ourselves in having one of the top passage rates for California State Bar accredited law schools.  In fact, we even surpassed two California ABA-accredited law schools* in July 2012 with a 58% passage rate for our first-time takers.  *Please see the statistics on the State Bar of California website here:

Admission to Practice in California

Our graduates include more than 10 California Superior Court Judges.

In addition to the California Superior Court Judges, our graduates include the Sacramento County District Attorney, Sacramento County Sheriff, and the General Counsel to the California Highway Patrol – a sure sign that students who graduate from Lincoln Law School of Sacramento are well prepared to pass the California State Bar Exam and begin their careers practicing law in California and aspiring to new heights.

Information related to admission to practice in California can be found at the State Bar of California website, (www.calbar.ca.gov/admissions).

Practice in States Other Than California

Study at, or graduation from, Lincoln 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.

Details about each state’s requirements can be found in the publication entitled, “Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements,” compiled by the National Conference of Bar Examiners and found at http://www.ncbex.org/pubs/bar-admissions-guide/2015/index.html#p=21, or by contacting the admitting authority of each state.  Please keep in mind states may change their requirements from year to year.

Equality

Equality of opportunity in legal education is provided by Lincoln Law School in admission and retention of students and hiring, retention, and promotion of faculty without discrimination or segregation on the grounds of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, or sexual orientation, except insofar as such action is protected by the Constitution of the State of California.
