Additional Information
With a long-standing emphasis on diversity, public service, and innovative programs, and a mid-city campus featuring a world-renowned Art Deco landmark, Southwestern Law School reflects the vibrancy of Los Angeles and provides an ideal setting for law study. Founded in 1911 as an independent, nonprofit, nonsectarian institution, Southwestern is fully approved by the ABA and is a member of the AALS. It is the only law school to offer four J.D. courses of study that differ in scheduling and instructional approach, including traditional full- and part-time programs as well as a unique two-year accelerated curriculum. Southwestern also offers a concurrent JD/MBA program with The Drucker Graduate School of Management; a JD/MA program in Negotiation with California State University, Dominguez Hills; a public policy certificate program with the Pardee RAND Graduate School; and LL.M. programs in entertainment and media law and individualized studies. Southwestern's 10,000 alumni include prominent public officials - from members of Congress to mayors, and over 200 judges - as well as founders of major law firms and general counsels of multinational corporations. The law school has strong ties to the legal, business, and civic sectors, and its Biederman Entertainment and Media Law Institute is closely linked to the entertainment industry in Hollywood and internationally.

Southwestern has been at the forefront of legal education since its inception. It was one of the first law schools to encourage the enrollment of women and minorities; the first law school on the West Coast to use the case method of instruction; the first law school in the country to offer an accelerated two-year J.D. program; one of the first law schools to design a J.D. program for students with child or elder care responsibilities; the first law school in the country to offer an LL.M. in entertainment law; and the first law school in the country to offer a choice of three advocacy tracks to first-year students, among many other "firsts." Southwestern has been recognized for curricular innovation by the Carnegie Foundation.

No matter what you’re interested in studying, there’s a school on the list for you.
