UCLS is an engaged, diverse, and inclusive community of students, faculty, staff, and alumni who help one another succeed. Their selective admissions process keeps the student body small, enabling the faculty, staff, alumni, and professional network to invest deeply in each student’s success. Because they take responsibility to educate and train future lawyers very seriously, their curriculum, research centers, and experiential learning opportunities are designed to prepare students for success in today’s changing legal environment.
