Three students listening intently in class

At California Western, you will develop the knowledge, skills, and experience a new lawyer needs for success in early practice and throughout your career.

We carefully design our program beginning with the first year, to ensure that our students start with a foundational understanding of the law. You begin to build that foundation as you develop skills and hands-on experience in your second year.

In the third year, most of our students participate in our Clinical Externship Program, through which you can spend up to 40 hours per week working in a real law office, nonprofit, or other organization. We guarantee a clinical experience for any student who wants one.
