John F. Kennedy University College of Law is accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California and by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
Accreditation by the Committee of Bar Examiners permits graduates to take the California Bar Examination upon graduation and, when the graduate passes and complies with all other admission requirements, to practice law anywhere in California, in both State and federal courts.
Study at, or graduation from, this law school may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or be admitted to practice law in jurisdictions other than California. A student who intends to seek admission to practice law outside of California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding its education and admission requirements.
