    Accreditation History

    Established in 1995 as part of the much older Chapman University, Chapman Law gained provisional accreditation from the American Bar Association (ABA) in 1998. And in 2002, the ABA awarded the school full accreditation. In addition to its ABA membership, the Association of American Law Schools has also formally admitted Chapman Law as one of its members in 2006, noting that "the school has an outstanding physical facility and has developed a faculty with a strong commitment to teaching and scholarship."


    Chapman Law is currently listed in the 3rd Tier (out of four) of the US News and World Report's annual law school rankings, and as the 17th best tax law program.

    The 2010 edition of The Princeton Review's Best 172 Law Schools lists Chapman Law as #2 in the "Best Classroom Experience" category, #3 in the "Best Quality of Life" category, and #7 in the "Professors Rock (Legally Speaking)" category.

    Law Journals

    Chapman Law has three law journals: the Chapman Law Review, the Journal of Criminal Justice, and the Nexus Journal of Opinion. According to the Washington and Lee University School of Law's submissions and ranking system, Chapman's law review ranks 59 (out of 262) in the general law journals category and 93 (out of 1424) in the total law journals category.

      The School of Law has quickly earned a reputation as an emerging center for legal education.

      Since opening in 1995, the School of Law has:
      • Received full and unconditional approval by the American Bar Association.
      • Opened a spectacular facility for legal study.
      • Placed graduates in high-profile firms, prestigious judicial clerkships and government positions.
      • Competed exceedingly well against many well-established schools in key law school rankings.
      • Attracted faculty who have clerked for Supreme Court Justices and who hold degrees from Harvard, Stanford, Chicago, UCLA, USC, Pennsylvania, Georgetown and Michigan and with publications in distinguished law reviews and journals such as Minnesota Law Review, Wisconsin Law Review, Harvard Environmental Law Review, the Georgetown Journal of Law and Policy, Cornell Journal of Law and Public Policy and many others.
      • Launched new LL.M. degrees in taxation and prosecutorial science, and added an exciting new certificate program in entertainment law.
      • Seated students with consistently stronger academic credentials year after year.
      • Routinely competed head to head against some of the nation's top law schools in its burgeoning student competition program.
