Enrollment Information

Introduction The method of instruction at this law school for the Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree program is principally in physical classroom facilities.

Students enrolled in the J.D. degree program at this school who successfully complete the first year of law study must pass the First-Year Law Students’ Examination required by Business and Professions Code section 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. 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.

Study at, or graduation from, this law school may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or to satisfy the requirements for admission to practice in jurisdictions other than California. A student intending to seek admission to practice law in a jurisdiction other than California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding the legal education requirements in that jurisdiction for admission to the practice of law.

There is one degree program available at the Larry H. Layton School of Law (LHLSOL).

The JD degree program offered at LHLSOL is a part time program. You must attend classes for four (4) calendar years, going at least thirty (30) weeks per year and going to classes nine (9) hours per week. The LHLSOL usually offers classes on Friday evenings, Saturday mornings and Saturday afternoons so that students can hold down full time jobs while going to law school. Weekday and evening classes during the week are sometimes available if so desired by students.

About the dean and owner of the law school

While Larry H. Layton School of Law , is relatively new, commencing operations in 1994, the overwhelming desire of Dean and Owner Larry H. Layton is not. In 1972 Dean Layton began assisting and preparing law students with their law studies. He drafted and orally recorded numerous study aids, known as Larry H Layton Legal Aids, owned and operated Larry H. Layton Law Review Courses and tutored many students preparing to take bar examinations. In 1975 while Dean Layton was still a law student in his final year of law school, he was approached and hired to teach law as a law professor at another law school. After a hiatus from teaching for 19 years, and practicing law for those 19 years, in 1994 Dean Layton returned to the field of educating and preparing law students for the practice of law by organizing the Larry H. Layton School of Law.
