Accreditation

Juris Doctor Program

At this time, neither the State Bar of California nor the American Bar Association “accredits” distance learning or correspondence law schools. However, Oak Brook College of Law is registered with, and authorized by, the State Bar of California to grant the Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree. The principal method of instruction is currently by correspondence.

Study at, or graduation from, this school may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or to satisfy the requirements for admission to practice in jurisdictions other than California. A student intending to seek admission to practice law in a jurisdiction other than California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding the legal education requirements in that jurisdiction for admission to the practice of law. Please refer to the Disclosures page of our website.

Paralegal Program

The College has approval to operate the college’s Paralegal Program from the Bureau for Private and Postsecondary Education (BPPE). Approval to operate means compliance with state standards as set forth in the California Private Postsecondary Education Act of 2009. Please refer to the Disclosures page of our website.
