Law schools in California prepare students for a Juris Doctor (JD) degree that allows them to practice law once they pass the bar examination. Law schools typically require students to have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. The JD degree typically takes at least three years to complete, and teaches students to analyze and teach law. The learning environment within law schools is competitive and teachers utilize the Socratic approach to teaching, where they randomly call on students for answers to their questions. The job prospects for graduates are expected to be highly competitive, due to market saturation of attorneys. Many graduates take temporary attorney positions right out of law school before settling into full-time positions.
