Support for UC Irvine School of Law from the legal and business
community, donors and prospective employers, as well as UCI students,
alumni, faculty and staff, has been extraordinary. While our graduates
will be competitive nationally and tap into a national network for jobs
and clerkships, our Southern California location—between Los Angeles and
San Diego, within the heart of a major hub of technology companies—is a
distinct advantage. So is the school’s home at UC Irvine, one of the
nation’s leading research universities, offering 51 master’s degrees and
46 doctorate degrees.
Civic, education, corporate and legal community leaders have worked for decades to bring a new public law school to California.
UCI combines the strengths of a major research university with the
geographic and economic benefits of a dynamic Southern California
More than $24 million already has been raised for the school from
generous donors, creating 11 endowed faculty chairs, a dean’s chair and
numerous $100,000 scholarships.
