Adjunct Professor Ricardo Ochoa and CLP Director Dana Sisitsky

In the Media

Mentions and features of California Western appear throughout the U.S. and around the globe. These are a few of this month's highlights. Click to view a full compendium of our presence in the media.

KPBS interviews Community Law Project Executive Director Dana Sisitsky and 3L Mariza Lockhart about CLP's 10th anniversary and the free clinics' achievements during their first decade.

Professor Nancy S. Kim is quoted in a L.A. Times piece that examines U.S. and European privacy laws, saying, "The difference is that Europeans haven't bought into the 'market knows best' philosophy. In the U.S., the words 'free market' and 'free speech' are powerful rhetorical tools that businesses use to fend off nationwide privacy regulation."

On KUSI TV, Adjunct Professor Ricardo Ochoa discussed new California laws for 2016 that affect the workplace, including equal pay for men and women, California's minimum wage, and family leave.

Giving Tuesday Thanks and Oath of Professional Conduct


From campus news and events to alumni and student success, the California Western community has a lot of information to share. These are some of this month's stories. To read more, visit our online newsroom.

Four 3Ls were awarded scholarships at the Earl B. Gilliam Bar Foundation's 39th Annual Awards and Scholarship Dinner. Our students took home four of the seven generous and prestigious scholarships given to local law students this year through the newly created foundation.

California Western's Giving Tuesday Campaign was a major success, exceeding everyone's expectations as the law school's supporters kept giving, and giving, and giving. Because of the amazing support of our community, our Board of Trustees' generous match, and a few surprise gifts, we raised a total of $147,004.

Nearly 70 California Western graduates took the Oath of Professional conduct after passing the July 2015 California Bar Exam, and were also sworn-in to the California and federal bars.

Law Dogs, Janeen Kerper Scholarship, and Professor Lynch

Social Reach

We recognize the importance of social interaction and are represented on all major social media outlets. These posts were the most successful in creating the buzz that grows California Western's diverse online community.

On Facebook, a congratulatory post for 3L Leah Gonzales' selection as the 2015 Janeen Kerper Scholarship recipient gained quite a lot of traction with CWSL constituents and the San Diego legal community, demonstrating our students' commitment to local organizations. Also on Facebook, the Admissions office's own Tony Duldulao shared a very well-received photo of Professor Lynch, as he inspired incoming students during orientation for one final time.

This photo of the law school's perennial favorite—Law Dogs—was our most-liked on Instagram, while California Western's Happy Holidays messaging across all of our social media platforms engaged with students, faculty, and staff alike.
