California School of Law

Introduction

The California School of Law

The California School of Law is an online law school with the goal of providing an educational experience that is as close as possible to that at a traditional residential law school. Students at CSL can see and speak with the professors and classmates by logging into a live Video Conferencing Classroom from their computer at home or work.

All classes are taught by experienced faculty, all of whom have passed the California State Bar Exam or the bar exam in another state.

How Online Law School Classes Work

Students choose The California School of Law's Online Law School to obtain an JD degree because they cannot attend a residential law school due to work or family commitments, not to mention the enormous financial burden of the tuition and travel involved in attending a residential law school.

The classes at the California School of Law provide a genuine law school experience at a pace and cost that is manageable for a working adult.

The classes meet each week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, with students and professors participating in live video conferencing. In the classes, they discuss and debate the law as if they were physically in the same room. In these classes professors utilize the traditional Socratic Method of legal education, students make case presentations and are questioned about the case by the professor.

State of the art technology enables students to submit examinations, essays and memoranda of law, for professors to review, discuss and grade. The technology also enables the students to form study groups in which they discuss cases, trade class outlines, prep for tests and make friends and networking connections that may last a lifetime.
