Pacific Coast University - California Accredited Law School
Welcome to Pacific Coast University, School of Law. Our law school in Long Beach, CA has served students in Los Angeles and Orange County since 1927. Initially, the University offered graduate programs in Business and Divinity, as well as law. The law school survived the Great Depression and our mission to offer an affordable, quality legal education continues with a dedicated faculty that includes practicing lawyers and judges.
The diverse student population of Pacific Coast University is largely comprised of working adults in the community, including women and minorities in greater numbers than many law schools. The night law school is attended by hardworking people with limited funds, who are working and raising families, while trying to pursue their law degrees. It has always been our policy to keep costs at a minimum to make law school affordable for our students.
Our program includes traditional curriculum in law, leading to the Juris Doctor degree. Students are prepared to take and pass the General Bar Examination of California. The program has two schedule options and is designed to cover subjects covered in the General Bar Examination, as well as classes in topics that are essential for new lawyers when starting out in practice.
One thing that sets Pacific Coast University apart from many law schools in the United States is our size. Our law school is small and classes are limited to 50 students to provide ample opportunity for interchange between professors and students. If you are looking for a law school in Los Angeles or Orange County, we encourage you to browse our website to learn more about our program, admissions, faculty and more.
