All JD students benefit from On Course, our exclusive program that prepares you for the California Bar Exam starting on your first day of class. To graduate with a Juris Doctor degree, you must successfully complete 74 units of required courses and 16 units of electives (90 units total) with C average (2.0 GPA). Full-time students can expect to complete their JD in three years, while part-time and Flex Track students can complete it in four years.
Trinity Law School is accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California. The legal education provided by Trinity Law School meets all requirements under the rules and regulations pertaining to admission to the practice of law in California. Learn More >>
The majority of online Juris Doctor coursework is completed independently by the student. Live sessions via video conferencing are required at specific times. Live sessions ensure that information studied independently is sufficiently comprehended. Law school is demanding, and regular live guidance throughout the JD degree is necessary for future Bar exam success. These live sessions will be held on the first three weeks of class and every other week after that.
Online orientation, discussion boards, quizzes, video lectures, exams, meetings with professors and academic support, are all part of the program. Internship and study abroad opportunities are also available.
Applicants who meet the requirements for admission to the regular JD program are automatically considered for merit and non-merit based scholarships based on the information provided throughout the admissions process. Most scholarships are renewable as long as specific academic requirements are maintained each semester.Learn More
Applicants who do not meet our regular LSAT requirements but who still show academic promise may be accepted to the Flex Track program. Flex Track courses are only taken in the evenings three days per week for the first year of study. All required courses are offered either on campus or 100% online. You may select a hybrid schedule with some classes online and others on campus. Students must pass the First Year Law Students’ Exam (FYLSX or “Baby Bar”) before continuing to the third semester/second year. Once the third semester has begun, you are considered to be part of the Regular JD Program.
