JFK School of Law at National University

The JFK School of Law’s Juris Doctor degree Program has been continually accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners for the State Bar of California since 1981. Our Juris Doctor program emphasizes the practical application of theory, preparing students to successfully sit for the CA Bar Examination and enter the legal profession as highly skilled, ethical, and passionate legal professionals.

The JFK School of Law also offers several American Bar Association (ABA) approved undergraduate paralegal and pre-law degrees to prepare our students for a wide range of positions in the legal field.

At the JFK School of Law, we value/balance the flexibility that distance learning provides and the importance of faculty-to-student mentorship and student-to-student interaction. We provide law students the opportunity to enroll in courses which blend both synchronous and asynchronous learning – allowing you to work towards a law degree on your time and from a place that is convenient for you.

We invite you to experience our difference.
