State Bar of California
In recognition of the integrity of our educational program, the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California granted Lincoln Law School of Sacramento provisional accreditation in 1978 and full accreditation in 1981. The Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California is the degree-granting authority to which Lincoln Law School of Sacramento may issue the degree of Juris Doctor (J.D.). To become accredited, a law school must establish that its paramount objective is to provide a sound legal education.
An accredited law school is one that has met specific standards set by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California.

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 [email protected] or (510) 748-9001.
