Thank you for your interest in hiring our students and alumni. At California Western, we pride ourselves in training students to become practice-ready graduates with the skills to make immediate contributions to your firm or organization. Through our various clinics, the Pro Bono and Public Service Programs, the Clinical Externship Program, and other training opportunities, more than 75% of our students acquire at least 720 hours of supervised, hands-on, practical legal experience before graduation.

"California Western students are well prepared to do the work. Their course work is thorough, and their involvement in the STEPPS Program gives them the extra tools to immerse themselves quickly in the practical problems we face in court. Cal Western’s students also have been instilled with high standards of professionalism and civility. They are impressively trained future lawyers!"

The Honorable Anthony Battaglia ’74, US District Judge for the Southern District of California
