San Francisco Law School is a part of Alliant International University, an institution accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) and is approved by the U.S. Department of Education for financial aid.
San Francisco Law School is accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California and has been continuously accredited since California accreditation began in 1937. Students who graduate from one of our law programs are eligible to practice law in the State of California upon passage of the California Bar Exam.
Study at, or graduation from, these California law schools may not qualify a student to take the bar exam or be admitted to practice law in jurisdictions other than California. A student who intends to seek admission to practice outside of California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding its education and admission requirements.
