Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego Loses ABA Accreditation Appeal

The ABA upheld a decision to strip national accreditation from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in downtown San Diego. The school will lose national accreditation effective Dec. 17th.

Like La Verne School of Law in Los Angeles, Thomas Jefferson plans to continue operating but with accreditation from the state.
Accreditation from the State Bar of California allows the school’s students to take the state bar exam, but not bar exams in other states.

Among other deficiencies, Thomas Jefferson has posted very low bar exam pass rates. Last year only 24% of first time takers passed the bar exam. The repeat takers were shockingly lower than that.

The MBE & UBE Testing Institute knows that taking the bar exam as a repeat taker can be an isolating experience. The MBE & UBE Testing Institute helps the student keep motivated and confident through interaction with an MBE & UBE Testing Institute’s bar tutor.

3 Months Until the Bar Exam; Get Help with the MBE & UBE Testing Institute

The February 2020 bar exam is 3 months away. For repeat takers, it’s time to start the study process. Don’t let anyone tell you it’s too early, or that you will burn yourself out. That’s not true. Start studying a couple of hours a day; small bites of the material, until you are ready to immerse yourself with your task. February will come around much, much faster than you think it will. Don’t sabotage your studies by waiting until the last minute. It doesn’t work that way. You only get better with work and practice.

Don’t forget we are seeing repeat takers fail rate at 65-75%. That’s because the exams are getting harder and, unfortunately, too few students are taking their job of passing the bar exam seriously. There is a lot of subjects to learn and review. You must put effort and stamina in your studies. This is not a passive review. You must work and you must work hard.

For repeat takers, if have taken the bar exam multiple times and are still not getting the results you want, think about getting a MBE & UBE Testing Institute tutor. There is obviously something about the way you study or how you study that is not producing results for you. A MBE & UBE Testing Institute tutor can set up a study plan with you, discuss areas of the bar exam materials that you are not getting and keep you motivated and less isolated.

Remember, you have much work to do and many subjects to master before the February bar exam.

LaVerne Law School drops ABA bid; To be Only California Accredited

The University of La Verne, in Los Angeles, will keep its law school open, but as a California-accredited campus instead of an ABA accredited school.

The university voted to convert the law school from ABA accreditation to accreditation by the State Bar of California—a move that will make it easier for the Ontario, California, campus to meet program standards. But it will also mean that graduates are only eligible to take the bar exam in California.

Under the new plan, La Verne would become the first law school to drop its ABA accreditation in the wake of that body adopting tougher bar exam standards. The ABA in 2018 changed that standard, giving law schools two years instead of five years to ensure that at least 75% of their graduates pass the licensing exam.

That heightened standard was one factor that prompted the board of trustees last month to order a full-scale review of the La Verne’s law school and its sustainability. The school’s long-term finances were another catalyst for the review, officials said. About 240 students are enrolled at the school.

Graduates of ABA-accredited law schools had a 71% first-time pass rate on the July 2019 exam. That figure was 26% for graduates of California-accredited schools. The repeat bar exam taker rate was a dismal 14%. La Verne has a particularly horrible pass rate.

Contact the MBE & UBE Testing Institute for help with the California bar exam. We have a program that will help you pass.

For Repeat Bar Exam Takers: It’s Time to Look to the Future and to Pass the Bar Exam in February with the MBE & UBE Testing Institute

The last bar exam results for July 2019 came out last Friday. The July 2019 bar exam cycle is over. It is now time to concentrate on the future for repeat bar exam takers. That future is passing the February 2020 bar exam.

We have talked with many repeat bar exam takers this bar cycle who are devastated over not passing the bar exam. Yes, not passing the bar exam is shattering, but it is not defeating.

Maya Angelou said that “You will face many defeats in life, but never let yourself be defeated.”

That is the attitude you must have when you face the February 2020 bar exam. Dry your tears, don’t give up, and don’t falter in your belief that you will pass. Ask yourself every day, “what will I do today to make my dream come true?” Don’t do the same old thing, shake up your studies, look for someone who can help you and understands what you are going through. The MBE & UBE Testing Institute can help you with this journey.
