Dayton Law's LL.M. grads could sit for California bar

California here we come? 

Students in the University of Dayton School of Law's online Master of Laws (LL.M.) program in American and Transnational Law are a step closer to being able to sit for the bar examination in California.

The State Bar of California recently notified the law school that courses in its online LL.M., including the professional responsibility course, may qualify the students to sit for the exam provided they meet certain requirements within three years of beginning the program.

LL.M. programs are for those who already hold a law degree but want additional training in a specific area. Dayton Law's fully online LL.M. program focuses on U.S. law and legal practice. It is open to domestic and international students. Students can complete the program on a flexible schedule in approximately one year.

Complete State Bar of California guidelines for applicants with a foreign law degree can be found here. 

Additional information regarding the online LL.M. program and related bar and career opportunities can be found here. In addition to sitting for the bar in California, graduates of the program also can be eligible to sit for the bar exam in the state of Washington.
