Student Ambassadors are current California Western students who help bridge the gap between life before law school and life at California Western. They come from all over the country and have a variety of interests in the practice of law. They give campus tours, speak on Preview Day and Orientation panels and help the Admissions Team recruit new students at law fairs. Most importantly, they make themselves available to those who'd like to hear a student's perspective on the law school experience. If you'd like to speak with a student ambassador, please submit your request to We're happy to introduce them to you here!
