The college only offers night classes because it caters to working students. After three and a half to four years and taking the right courses, an individual can obtain his or her J.D. 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. During any one semester, the sister schools have about 26 faculty members between them, and they have an additional 10 or so during summer sessions.

Ventura College of Law strives to be a quality law school that is "convenient and affordable." The school is also an alternative to pricier private law schools. The average tuition is less than $8,000 per year, and for the entire program (all four years), the cost is $31,500. The school sometimes offers weekend classes as well.
