HDV Law School's main purpose is to provide practical, online teaching in the area of law which will be applicable to your professional goals. Our mission is to create a path for the lawyers of the future and facilitate meaningful discussion.
With our curriculum entirely online, our students are from all over the world. From being a working professional to a traditional student embarking on continued education, having classes online allows you to experience life, along with academics.
We have developed a payment installment plan for our students that will not place undue financial hardship or loan debt. All throughout we want you to concentrate on your academic excellence, not how to balance the growing financial pressures.
Each student seeking a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree is required to complete 104 semester units in four years to graduate. Per the California Board of Bar Examiners, after their first year, they must pass the First Year of Law School Examination (FYLSX), which evaluates understanding of legal principles and procedure of core topics.
The State of California has the unique distinction of being the only jurisdiction in the United States that permits graduates of California State Bar registered distance-learning law schools to sit for its bar examination. Graduates of our program are conferred with the J.D. degree and may sit for the bar exam in California.
HDV Law School's main pillar is to provide our students the online legal education resources in being successful. There is no substitute for experience when teaching complex areas of the law. Our faculty members are among the most accomplished lawyers in the country, with degrees from the most nationally-acclaimed law schools.
Our faculty members care! Each one has the desire to transfer practical legal knowledge to our students in an easily-accessible online format. All faculty members have practiced in the areas they instruct, thus providing real experiences our students can use in the professional arena. We want to see students succeed in life and in the profession.
