California Western is planning to reopen in August 2021 with a vaccine mandate. Please click here for more details.

Taught by California Western faculty, the Summer Skills Program (SSP) will introduce you to the study of law as well as the core skills used in law school and the legal profession. Several California Western faculty will discuss how these skills inform their own research and legal work. Participation in SSP is voluntary and ungraded.

SSP class sessions will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 6 to July 22 at 1:00-2:20 pm PDT (with the exception of the July 8 session that took place from 11:00 am-12:20 pm).
