After taking 84 units of required courses and electives, a student at Ventura College of Law is eligible to take the California bar exam.

The average student takes nine units for three required semesters: fall, spring, and summer. Students must take all three semesters to qualify for the exam. According to Assistant Dean and Admissions Director Linda Paavola, the school has had more than 1,600 graduates.



"Our mission is to provide a high-quality legal education through an affordable part-time program," said Paavola. "We are an opportunity school. Men and women of all ages and experiences have the opportunity to enter the legal profession."

According to Paavola, all the instructors at Ventura College of Law are local attorneys and judges, and some have been teaching for more than 25 years.
