The Santa Barbara & Ventura Colleges of Law is a private law school in Santa Barbara and Ventura, California. Although the school is regionally-accredited, it is not accredited by the American Bar Association.


The Ventura campus was founded in 1969 and the Santa Barbara campus was added in 1975. As of 2007, the colleges have over 1,600 alumni.[2] In 2016, Jackie Gardina was appointed Dean and Chief Academic Officer, succeeding Heather Georgakis, who served COL for three decades, including 15 years as Dean.[3]


The Colleges of Law is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools & Colleges Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC). Additionally, the Juris Doctor program has been accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California for more than 30 years. This accreditation applies to both campuses (Santa Barbara and Ventura). Neither campus is accredited by the American Bar Association. Graduates are eligible to take the California bar exam and practice law in California.


Juris Doctor

The Juris Doctor program is a part-time evening curriculum with classes generally held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays in Santa Barbara and on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays in Ventura. The academic calendar consists of two 15-week semesters and a 10-week summer term. Typically, students complete the program within three to four years.[4]

The average class size is approximately 25 students.

Master of Legal Studies

In 2012, The Colleges of Law added a Master of Legal Studies (M.L.S.) degree to their course offerings. This program is available to students online, with an option to complete a campus residency. Upon entering the program, students choose between two concentrations: Frontiers in Law or Regulatory Compliance and Legal Risk Management. The M.L.S. degree can be completed in 18 months.[5]
