San Francisco Law School


San Francisco Law School is dedicated to 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 over 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.

San Francisco Law School is a school of Alliant International University, an institution accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), and is approved by the U.S. Department of Education for financial assistance.

Additionally, San Francisco Law School is accredited by the State Bar of California, Committee of Bar Examiners. San Francisco Law School has been continuously accredited since 1937.

Students who graduate from San Francisco Law School are eligible to practice law in the State of California upon passage of the California Bar Examination.

Study at, or graduation from, this law school may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or be admitted to practice law in jurisdictions other than California. A student who intends to seek admission to practice law outside of California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding its education and admission requirements.

In March 2014, the Committee of Bar Examiners of The State Bar of California granted approval to open a branch campus of San Francisco Law School in San Diego. The branch campus is a provisionally accredited campus of California Accredited San Francisco Law School. San Diego Law School is the name of our fully accredited branch campus situated  on the San Diego campus of Alliant International University.
