With a long-standing emphasis on innovative programs, diversity, public service, and an award-winning mid-city campus featuring a world-renowned Art Deco landmark, Southwestern Law School reflects the vibrancy of Los Angeles and provides an ideal setting for law study. Founded 100 years ago as an independent, nonprofit, nonsectarian institution, Southwestern is the only law school to offer four J.D. courses of study that differ in scheduling and instructional approach, including traditional full- and part-time programs, as well as a unique two-year alternative curriculum. Southwestern’s 10,000 alumni include prominent public officials—from members of Congress to mayors, and over 200 judges—as well as founders of major law firms and general counsels of multinational corporations.

Southwestern has partnered with the Drucker Graduate School of Management of Claremont Graduate University to offer concurrent J.D./M.B.A. degree programs (including an accelerated 3-year double degree option), a J.D./M.A. program in Negotiation and Peacebuilding with California State University, Dominguez Hills, as well as LL.M. programs in entertainment and media law and individualized studies. The law school also boasts strong ties to the legal, business, and civic sectors, and its Biederman Entertainment and Media Law Institute is closely linked to the entertainment industry in Hollywood and internationally.
