If you want to be a lawyer, you have to pass the Bar exam in the state where you want to practice – and usually that means you have to graduate from law school first. California is one of only a handful of states in the United States that allows you to take the Bar exam without going to law school at all. However, you should keep in mind that your odds of actually passing are extremely low. The California Bar exam has a passage rate of less than 50 percent, and that rate shrinks to less than 5 percent among exam takers who didn't graduate from law school.
