    Re: California Western School of Law (Full ABA)

    Founded in 1924, California Western School of Law (popularly known as California Western or Cal Western) is a private, non-profit law school located in San Diego, California. The school was accredited by the American Bar Association in 1962 and became a member of the Association of American Law Schools in 1967. It is the oldest law school in San Diego. California Western is home to both the Southern California and Hawaii "Innocence Projects." Its International Law Journal is among the oldest in the nation.


    The law school teaches the traditional Juris Doctor curriculum plus dual-degree programs, specifically:
    • Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration (with San Diego State University)
    • Juris Doctor/Master of Social Work (with San Diego State University)
    • Juris Doctor/Ph.D. in Political Science or History (with University of California, San Diego)

    California Western and University of California San Diego offer a joint Master's of Advanced Studies degree in Health Law.

    California Western also offers the Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree in Trial Advocacy with a Specialization in Federal Criminal Law as well as an M.C.L./LL.M for foreign law students.

    Its research centers include:
    • William J. McGill Center for Creative Problem Solving
    • Institute for Criminal Defense Advocacy
    • National Center for Preventive Law
    • California Innocence Project - The California Innocence Project, part of the national network of Innocence Projects, is a non-profit clinical program based at California Western in which law professors and students work to free wrongly convicted prisoners in California. The law students assist in the investigation of cases where there is strong evidence of innocence, write briefs in those cases, and advocate in all appropriate forums for the release of the project's clients. Founded in 1999, the California Innocence Project reviews more than 1,000 claims of innocence from California inmates each year and has earned the release of five wrongfully convicted clients. The Project is directed by Professor Justin Brooks and Professor Jan Stiglitz.

    Its clinical internship program routinely places students in the U.S. Court of Appeals, U.S. District Court and U.S. Attorney's Offices.

    California Western's areas of concentration provide a rigorous academic experience in the following areas:
    • Child, Family & Elder Law
