Student Life

Diverse Community

Ranked the sixth most ethnically diverse law school in the nation, our students arrive on campus every year from throughout California, across the country and around the world, with degrees and professional experience from inside the legal field and out.

Community Events

Throughout the year, the law school and student organizations sponsor panels, guest speakers, and special programs that showcase diverse experiences and perspectives while providing opportunities for students to network with faculty, alumni, members of the bench and the bar, and visiting dignitaries. Law school-sponsored events include:

  • Law Review Symposium
  • Alumni-Student-Faculty Mixer
  • Lunches with Lawyers Professional Networking

Student Bar Association

All students attending the law school are members of the Student Bar Association (SBA), which sponsors social and cultural activities and gives students a voice in school policy. The SBA also funds and oversees student organizations, including:

  • American Trial Lawyers Association
  • Environmental Law Association
  • Health Law Society
  • Intellectual Property and Cyberspace Law Association
  • Korean American Law Students Association
  • National Lawyers Guild
  • Pride Law Association
  • Women's Law Association
