Welcome to San Francisco Law School
For more than 100 years, San Francisco Law School has been providing a quality legal
education to a diverse student body – many of whom balance work and family responsibilities
while attending school. Successful completion of the San Francisco Law School curriculum
entitles our graduates to be awarded a J.D. degree – a Doctorate of Jurisprudence
– and helps prepare them to sit the California bar exam.
For most of its history, San Francisco Law School's legal program has been a part-time,
evening program. In order to give our students greater flexibility and options, San
Francisco Law School now also offers a full-time program at the San Francisco campus,
as well as a part-time program in San Diego.
The goal of San Francisco Law School is to ensure that each student who enters our
doors receives a quality legal education in preparation for the professional challenges
ahead. Courses are taught by a distinguished faculty of practicing attorneys and judges.
Required courses are supplemented by interesting elective programs and seminars that
are sensitive to the needs of a diverse student body. The sound legal education offered
at San Francisco Law School is supported by legal writing and legal analysis seminars,
especially during the early years when many law students need the most assistance.
The school’s weekly Academic Support sessions are open to all students.
