General Information

Lincoln offers a 4 and a 4 1/2 year part-time, evening study program. Students who enter in the Fall complete the program in 4 years. Students who enter in the January or Summer programs take a lighter course load during the first 1 1/2 years of study and thus, complete the program in 4 1/2 years.

Students usually attend classes three nights per week except during Summer Session when students generally attend classes one or two nights per week. Classes generally are conducted on week nights between the hours of 6:40 P.M. to 9:30 P.M.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to visit the School. You may contact the Coordinator of Admissions to arrange a tour of the facilities; a classroom visit; discussions with current students, alumni or faculty; a meeting with the Dean; or to request additional information not contained on the Web site or in the School's catalog. In addition, the School hosts an Open House at least twice a year to provide prospective students with an opportunity to tour the School facilities. At a typical Open House students learn more about the Law School program and the study of law; hear from faculty, current students, and alumni; and are invited to view currently offered law classes while in session. Please call the School for specific dates.


Lincoln is accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California. The Law School makes no representation to any applicant that prior to graduation of any matriculating student the School will either seek, apply for or be approved for accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

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.
