Non-ABA-Accredited Schools May Offer Good Alternative

In the lawyer world, ABA accreditation is the gold standard. Each year, thousands of students graduate from the 191 institutions across the country that are approved by the American Bar Association. And while for many, obtaining a law degree from an ABA-accredited law school is an absolute priority, for others, attending a non-ABA accredited law school can satisfy one's educational and career objectives.
 
Non-ABA-Accredited Schools May Offer Good Alternative

Several law schools operate without the approval of the American Bar Association, and states have their own bar associations that administer the bar exam. California is one example and has the largest and most powerful state bar in the country. The California Bar Association (CBA) issues accreditation to schools not accredited by the ABA.

Empire College School of Law is one of those schools accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California. Students who graduate from CBA-approved law schools can sit for the bar. Over the last five years, Empire Law School has achieved one of the highest pass rates for California accredited law schools and was ranked #2 in the state on the February 2004 exam. Approximately 22 percent of the Sonoma County Bar is comprised of Empire alumni.
