All prospective students and visitors: please click here for more details about visiting campus. We will be offering a variety of in-person and virtual options for the 2022-2023 year, including info sessions and campus tours. 

We are unique. No other law school in the United States exists at the epicenter of law firms; local, state, and federal courts; tech and biotech companies; and social justice-oriented non-profits — all in the heart of a progressive, global metropolis. Our students leave prepared to transform themselves and the world, without losing sight of real issues affecting real people living real lives.

We are proud to have one of the most extensive and innovative experiential learning and judicial externship programs in the country. Our graduates possess an array of skills that are critical for practice, which most lawyers don’t develop until completing several years on the job.

Our prestigious faculty are eminent scholars and professional leaders from a wide range of disciplines. They embody our school’s ethos by turning knowledge into action, and helping students do the same.

From international human rights attorneys, to litigators, to patent prosecutors, and beyond, our accomplished alumni practice in all fifty states and in global hotspots including Shanghai, Seoul, Dubai, and London. We invite you to explore what makes UC Hastings one of the top law schools in the nation.
