Pre-Law Studies

Pre-Law Introduction


Chaffey College is one of a select group of community colleges chosen to participate in a Pre-Law initiative sponsored by the California State Bar's Council on Access and Fairness (COAF). This unique opportunity for Chaffey students provides a pathway from community college to six California law schools and their undergraduate schools. Chaffey College Pre-Law students who participate in the program are designated as COAF Scholars. This entitles them to benefits provided by the pathway initiative.

All students must complete a major, earn an Associate’s Degree, complete the seven courses specified by the Council on Access and Fairness, achieve transfer to one of the participating universities, and are strongly advised to participate in an approved public interest/civic activity. Interested students should contact a Chaffey College counselor or a member of the Chaffey College Legal Studies faculty for more information on the Pathway to Law School program.

Interested students should complete the registration form and return it to the Pre-Law office in Business Education, Room BE-107.
