    Re: University of Honolulu School of Law (Rule XIX)

    Pacific Coast University (PCU), currently exclusively consisting of the Pacific Coast University School of Law, is a private, non-profit law school located in Long Beach, California, United States. The school prides itself on its history of diversity and low cost legal education.

    The sole program offered is a traditional curriculum in Law, leading to the Juris Doctor degree and qualifying graduates to take, and pass, the General Bar examination of California. As such, the course of studies includes all those subjects covered in California's Bar examination along with additional classes, such as Legal Research, Writing and Lawyering Skills, Trial Techniques ('Moot court'?) and Pleading and Practice which the school believes are essential for a lawyer just beginning practice. PCU has remained small: limiting classes to 50 students and draws its law professors from local practicing attorneys and judges.


    In 2008 PCU was granted provisional accreditation by the State Bar of California. Currently it is listed with the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California as an unaccredited law school. As such, students must take and pass the First-Year Law Students' Examination, also known as the "Baby Bar", at the end of their first year in order to receive credit for their law study and eventually qualify to sit for the California Bar Exam.

    In addition to being registered with the State Bar of California, PCU is authorized by the Bureau for Private and Postsecondary and Vocational Education to issue the Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree.

    Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree program

    The method of instruction at this law school for the Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree program is principally by correspondence.

    Students enrolled in the J.D. degree program at this law school who successfully complete the first year of law study must pass the First-Year Law Students' Examination required by Business and Professions Code ? 6060(h) and Rule VIII of the Rules Regulating Admission to Practice Law in California as part of the requirements to qualify to take the California Bar Examination. A student who passes the First-Year Law Students' Examination within three (3) administrations of the examination after first becoming eligible to take it will receive credit for all legal studies completed to the time the examination is passed. A student who does not pass the examination within three (3) administrations of the examination after first becoming eligible to take it must be promptly disqualified from the law school's J.D. degree program. If the dismissed student subsequently passes the examination, the student is eligible for re-enrollment in this law school's J.D. degree program, but will receive credit for only one year of legal study.
