Support for the new 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 worked for decades to bring a new public law school to California and continue to guide and support UCI Law in a variety of ways.
UC Irvine School of Law has the support of over 100 employers throughout the U.S. and internationally, including private firms, non-profit organizations, government agencies, federal and state courts.
UCI combines the strengths of a major research university with the geographic and economic benefits of a dynamic Southern California location.
