    Re: Lincoln Law School of San Jose (California)

    Lincoln Law School of San Jose is a private, non-profit law school in San Jose, California. It is an independent institution, formerly a part of Lincoln University.

    About the School

    The school traces its roots to 1919 when Dr. Benjamin Lickey and his wife Susan Lickey founded a law study program in San Francisco as a way to provide veterans and working-class students a part-time night school for law studies.

    The school was incorporated in 1926 as a part of Lincoln University and located in San Francisco, becoming a non-profit institution in 1949. In 1961, a second law school campus was opened in San Jose, graduating its first class in 1965. By 1987, Lincoln University's entire law school program was concentrated in San Jose. In 1993, the San Jose campus formally separated from Lincoln University becoming an independent, public benefit, non-profit corporation, changing its name to Lincoln Law School of San Jose. The school moved to downtown San Jose in 1999. In 2000, the 25-year-old Peninsula University School of Law merged into Lincoln Law School.

    General Information

    Lincoln offers a 4 and a 4 1/2 year part-time, evening study program. Students who enter in the Fall complete the program in 4 years. Students who enter in the January or Summer programs take a lighter course load during the first 1 1/2 years of study and thus, complete the program in 4 1/2 years.

    Students usually attend classes three nights per week except during Summer Session when students generally attend classes one or two nights per week. Classes generally are conducted on week nights between the hours of 6:40 P.M. to 9:30 P.M.

    Prospective applicants are encouraged to visit the School. You may contact the Coordinator of Admissions to arrange a tour of the facilities; a classroom visit; discussions with current students, alumni or faculty; a meeting with the Dean; or to request additional information not contained on the Web site or in the School's catalog. In addition, the School hosts an Open House at least twice a year to provide prospective students with an opportunity to tour the School facilities. At a typical Open House students learn more about the Law School program and the study of law; hear from faculty, current students, and alumni; and are invited to view currently offered law classes while in session. Please call the School for specific dates.


    The Law School has been accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California since 1993, but does not have or currently seek accreditation by the American Bar Association or the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

    The Law School makes no representation to any applicant that prior to graduation of any matriculating student the School will either seek, apply for or be approved for accreditation by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

    Practice of Law in California

    Many states require graduation from a law school accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA) or approved by the state's Supreme Court or examining committee of that state. 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.
