ABA Requirements/Non-ABA Schools

    In order to attend law school, you will need to have obtained a bachelors degree from an accredited four year college or university by the time you matriculate into law school.  There have been exceptions where students not completing their bachelors degree have obtained admission, but this is very rare.  Nearly all U.S. Law Schools also require an applicant to have taken the LSAT and be registered with LSDAS.
    While this book welcomes interest from others, it is geared towards graduates, and those who will soon graduate, from accredited U.S. four year colleges and universities interested in attending a U.S. ABA (American Bar Association) approved law school.  If you are considering attending a non-ABA approved law school take heed!  You need to understand that the great majority of states will not allow you to sit for their Bar Exam (that means you will not be able to become a lawyer in that state!).  Further, you need to investigate the Bar passage rates for the non-ABA law school you plan on attending.  There are many limitations to a non-ABA degree, and I encourage you to thoroughly understand those limitations before you commit to the program.
