The Mission of San Francisco Law School

San Francisco Law School is dedicated to providing the opportunity for a quality legal education to a diverse student population. For more than 100 years, the school has been devoted to educating attorneys who embody the highest skills and ethical standards of the profession.

Since its earliest days, San Francisco Law School has been a model of non-discrimination, diversity and opportunity. Students at San Francisco Law School seek to better their own lives and that of their families. Historically, many of our students are the first in their families to be in a doctoral program and, for some, the first to have graduated from college.

In October 2011, the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California approved the expansion of San Francisco Law School programs to include a full-time program. In 2014, the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California granted the San Francisco Law School approval to open a fully accredited campus in San Diego. Both the full-time program and the San Diego branch are natural complements to our traditional evening program and provide students with greater options and flexibility.
