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 both Facebook and Twitter, our post recognizing the law school's second straight victory in the ABTL-sponsored mock trial tournament generated a plethora of likes, shares, and comments. Our social media users were proud to congratulate the California Western team, who again bested local rivals from both Thomas Jefferson and University of San Diego School of Law.

This photo of the law school's annual Thanksgiving luncheon was a hit with Instagram users—as well as the students, faculty, and staff who were treated to a home-cooked meal by Student & Diversity Services.
