Academic Disclosure

 HDVLS is not currently operational or enrolling students at this point. 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.
