About AHU School of Law
American Heritage University School of Law (AHUSOL) was established in 2004 with the interest of the adult learner in mind that could not complete an educational goal due to unforeseen circumstances. AHUSOL stands out as one of the few reputable distance learning law schools in California for its passage rates on the First Year Law School Examination (FYLSX) and General Bar Examination (GBE) in recent years.
Our online law degree programs enable students to study and practice law utilizing modern technology and we also prepare our students to secure employment upon completion of their programs. The cost of completing the four year program at AHUSOL provides a unique opportunity for students to become free from huge financial debt after law school. AHUSOL sacrificially accepts low tuition to make a dream come true for the ordinary law school student to get a Juris doctor degree and also practice law in California with their counterparts in the ABA schools or simply earn a promotion at an existing law-related career.
