McGeorge educates lawyers for large and small law firms, government agencies and corporate legal departments in California, across the United States, and around the world. This has been their hallmark since 1924, and is truer today than ever before. As the world grows smaller yet more complex, McGeorge responds by rigorously training our students for leadership positions in the global economy of the 21st century. Their success is built on a distinguished faculty, high quality students, committed and involved alumni, and a beautiful, spacious campus with state-of-the art classrooms and student facilities.

McGeorge is an institution on the move, a dynamic law school that is changing and growing to meet the challenges of the global economy and to educate the lawyers who will be tomorrow’s leaders.
