Why is GUCL closing in May 2024?
As of the spring 22/23 quarter, GUCL will begin operating under a teach-out plan with the full closing of the law school taking place in late 2024. Enrollment of new students has ceased and the 2024 graduating class will be the school's last. Despite exceptional effort, significant challenges navigating post-pandemic realities have proved that continuing to operate the school beyond May 2024 is untenable.
During this transition, within the parameters of the teach-out plan, the law school will continue to operate normally.
What is the class schedule?
Students attend one class per evening. First-year students attend class 2 to 3 nights per week, second and third-year students 4 nights per week, and fourth-year students 3 nights per week. All classes are scheduled to meet from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and/or Thursday nights.
How do I pay for my education?
GUCL students have the option to make tuition payments quarterly, monthly, or with a student loan, whichever suits their finances best.
How is GUCL's Bar Exam pass rate?
GUCL students pass the CA Bar Exam! See GUCL's statistics on the Pass the Bar Exam page. Bar pass rates for all ABA, CBA, and Non-Accredited law schools in California are available here.
What academic support programs are offered?
Skill development and academic success are taken seriously at GUCL. Our support programs provide students with access to abundant resources throughout the four-year program. These include New Student Orientation, Legal Method and Examsmanship, BARBRI Law Student Success Resources, and BARBRI Bar Review.
