Founded in 1924, California Western has remained one of the few independent, non-profit law schools in the country since then. The educational institution was accredited by the American Bar Association in 1962 and became a member of the Association of American Law Schools in 1967.
The Centers and Institutes of California Western, which include the Institute for Criminal Defense Advocacy, California Innocence Project, Center for Creative Problem Solving, and the Institute of Health Law Studies, enrich students’ law school experience, at the same time enabling California Western to have a considerable impact on the broader society.
In addition to pursuing a traditional legal education, California Western students may specialize in a specific area of law – such as Intellectual Property and Telecommunications, International Law, Criminal Justice, or Health Law and Policy – in order to meet the rapidly evolving needs of the legal profession.
California Western School of Law is offering a pair of classes online, allowing attorneys to broaden their legal perspective while earning CLE credit. The courses – Telecommunications Law and Administrative Law – are part of the law school’s Executive Online Learning Program, aimed toward foreign and domestic lawyers seeking continuing education professional development training in administrative practice or technology-related legal issues; and graduate students involved in interdisciplinary study.
The Financial Aid Office at California Western School of Law administers student loans and work-study programs, and also coordinates scholarships awarded by other departments, such as Admissions or Diversity Services. The variety of financial aid opportunities include:
• Veterans’ benefits
