The Mission of San Francisco Law School

San Francisco Law School is dedicated to the providing the opportunity for a quality legal education to a diverse student population, many of whom are working full time jobs and have family responsibilities while attending law school.

For 100 years, San Francisco Law School has been devoted to educating attorneys who embody the highest skills of the legal profession and are committed to the ethical practice 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, 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 State Bar of California, Committee of Bar Examiners approved the expansion of San Francisco Law School programs to include a full time program. The full time program is a natural complement to our traditional evening program and provides students with greater options and flexibility.
