The California Legal Apprentice Program allows California residents to become attorneys without graduating from college or law school, assuming they meet basic educational requirements: if the candidate has no college degree, he or she may take and pass the CLEP, or College Level Examination Program. The Bar candidate must study under a judge or lawyer for four years and must also pass the Baby Bar within three administrations after first becoming eligible to take the examination.


This is your orientation to Wikiversity 1L Program. 1L is how lawyers and law students informally refer to the first year of the law school education. Law school education (part-time) in the United States is typically 4 years. The first year courses are typically: Contracts, Torts, /Property, Civil Procedure, Criminal Law, and Legal Writing.

Law school experience can be quite new to many. It has its own logic and jargons. It is your job to get used to those strange terms and rules.

Some reference wikibooks you need to get before you start school.
