In connection with the school’s centennial celebration, the USF School of Law will publish The University of San Francisco School of Law Century: 100 Years of Educating for Justice in September 2012.
Through words and hundreds of pictures, the commemorative book tells the story of change and continuity at the USF School of Law during its first 100 years. The changes have been dramatic. During the law school’s first academic year, beginning in September 1912, 49 young men, mostly first- and second-generation immigrants from Europe, began taking evening law classes at the University of St. Ignatius College of Law, located on the 6th floor of the Grant Building on Market Street, in downtown San Francisco. At the beginning of the fall semester of 2011, 734 men and women, of diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds, were enrolled in day and evening classes at the University of San Francisco School of Law, housed in the magnificent Koret Law Center, encompassing Kendrick Hall and the Zief Law Library, located a block from the edge of Golden Gate Park, in the geographical center of San Francisco.
The centennial book is available for purchase online, or in the USF bookstore. For information, call (415) 422-4409 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
