Accreditation and bar passage rate
The law school is not accredited by the American Bar Association, since the ABA only accredits law schools that have a full-time program and Lincoln has always been a part-time evening law school. As a result, Lincoln graduates generally do not qualify to take the bar exam and join the bar of states other than California without first passing the California bar exam.
Of the 34 Lincoln graduates who took the California bar exam for the first time in October 2020, 20 passed, for a 59% passage rate, vs. a 74% overall pass rate.
