The mission of Lincoln Law School of San Jose is to provide, to a diverse population, an opportunity to receive a superior and affordable legal education culminating in the conferral of a Juris Doctor Degree and certification to sit for the California State Bar Examination. Lincoln assists in diversifying the profession by providing students from various socio-economic backgrounds the credentials they need to provide outstanding legal service to under-served communities, and to populate political and judicial positions in pursuit of social justice.
Lincoln Law School of San Jose traces its origins to the early 1900's as one of San Francisco's first evening adult education programs.
Lincoln is proud to have graduated leaders in the Bay Area legal community, such as Kenneth Fung ('32), the first Chinese-American to be admitted to practice law in California; Presidential Fellow, Chris Moore, former Chief of the San Jose Police Department; former City Council members, Dave Cortese, three-time President of the Santa Clara Board of Supervisors and Linda Lezotte, now on the Board of the Santa Clara Valley Water District; Assistant City Attorney, William Hughes; Superior Court Judges Hugh F. Mullin, Ronald Lisk, Linda Condron, and Teresa Guerrero-Daley; Workers' Compensation Judge Adoralida Padilla; and former Commissioners Lois Kittle, Harold Cole, James L. Heath and Constance Jiminez.
Lincoln makes it possible for working adults with family and other pressing financial obligations to move up the corporate ladder, change careers, and change lives without the need to go to school full time or take on excessive amounts of student debt. Lincoln graduates provide desperately needed immigration, family law and criminal law services to Bar Area residents of modest means, often in their native languages.
For its service in helping to meet the needs of California's most vulnerable citizens, Lincoln Law School of San Jose has been commended by both the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors and the California State Assembly.
