The College of Law teaches the practice of law while preparing students to promote access to legal services and justice in the community. Few professions have the capability to produce change for individuals, municipalities, and entire regions so decisively as the legal profession. At La Verne Law, we prepare graduates to make a difference for their clients.
La Verne Law faculty are committed to creating an innovative, collaborative learning environment designed to develop the knowledge and real-world skills relevant to working in the legal profession. Our graduates find success in private practice, public service, business, government, and on the bench.
Our student body and faculty reflect the rich diversity of Southern California, and represent different perspectives that lead to robust and engaging study, debate, and discussion.
