San Diego, CA: Alliant International University is pleased to announce the addition of a fifth school, San Francisco Law School (SFLS), which offers a Juris Doctorate (JD) degree. SFLS joins Alliant's other professional schools - The California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP), The California School of Education (CSOE), The Marshall Goldsmith School of Management & Leadership (MGSM) and The California School of Forensic Studies (CSFS) - in their commitment to diversity, innovation and expanding access to quality professional education and training.

The merger greatly enhances Alliant's professional practice mission, adding law as a new and significant discipline to its curriculum, which, in combination with each of the current programs - Psychology, Forensics, Education and Business & Management - paves the way for unique and powerful interdisciplinary career paths as well as extraordinary teaching opportunities.

"We are very enthusiastic about the possibilities created by this merger and look forward to a strong and successful future together," says Dr. Geoffrey Cox, President of Alliant International University.

The addition of San Francisco Law School to Alliant International University's family of professional schools has been approved by the U. S. Department of Education, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and the Committee of Bar Examiners of the California State Bar. Students attending the law school effectively become Alliant students on July 1st. The law school will continue operating from its 20 Haight Street location and will be known as San Francisco Law School at Alliant International University.

Dr. Russ Newman, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs for Alliant, comments, "The Alliant Deans and I have already been engaging in exciting discussions with the law school Dean, Jane L.O'Hara Gamp, about ways to optimize the synergy among our graduate schools". As Dean Gamp recently told the legal community, "This is a memorable time in the history of San Francisco Law School and we look forward to the advantage of being a school of Alliant as we start our second century of legal education."

Alliant International University is a WASC accredited private non-profit university that emphasizes the practical application of theory and research in order to prepare students for professional careers in psychology, education, business & management, forensics and now law. Headquartered in San Francisco and San Diego, Alliant has additional campuses in Los Angeles, Irvine, Fresno, Sacramento and Mexico City with accredited programs in Hong Kong and Tokyo. 

San Francisco Law School is the oldest evening law school in the western United States. For over a hundred years, it has been dedicated to providing affordable access to quality legal education to the underrepresented in the legal profession. Outstanding alumni include former California State Governor, the late Edmund (Pat) Brown, former Lt. Governor Leo McCarthy and former Undersecretary of the United States Department of Energy, Joseph Salgado.
