The University of La Verne College of Law has been accredited by the State Bar of California.

The Committee of Bar Examiners for the State Bar of California, in a meeting Aug. 26, found the law school meets its Guidelines for Accredited Law School Rules, which establish standards for a law school relating to honesty and integrity, governance, administration and faculty, admissions, academic program, scholastic standards, library resources, physical and financial resources, and more.

State Bar of California accreditation qualifies all La Verne Law graduates to take the California Bar Exam. Passing the bar exam is a prerequisite to practicing law in the state.

“We are very pleased with the committee’s decision,” said La Verne Law Dean Allen Easley. “It ensures that our students have options after graduation, and puts the law school back on track in meeting its long-term goals.”
