Practice of Law in California
Many states require graduation from a law school accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA) or approved by the state’s Supreme Court or examining committee of that state. Study at, or graduation from, this 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.
Eligibility to Sit for the Bar Exam in other Jurisdictions
The Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements, a publication by the National Conference of Bar Examiners and the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admission to the Bar provides detailed information on bar admissions requirements in all jurisdictions
