    Re: McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific (Full ABA)

    University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law is a private, ABA-accredited law school in the Oak Park neighborhood of the city of Sacramento, California, commonly known as "Pacific McGeorge" as it is graduate school of the University of the Pacific. Originally founded in 1924, the school merged with and became part of the University of the Pacific in 1966. The university also runs a dental school in San Francisco, California. The current dean of McGeorge School of Law is former CIA General Counsel Elizabeth Rindskopf Parker.

    Additionally, Pacific McGeorge was ranked among the nation's Top 20 in both Advocacy and International Law programs in the 2007 U.S. News & World Report annual guide to 'America's Best Graduate Schools'. In 2008 it was tied for #3 in the West for its international programs and was also #45 for its student diversity.

      Legal Studies Center

      The heart of every great law school is its library. With more than 500,000 volumes, Pacific McGeorge's Gordon D. Schaber Law Library is home to one of the largest library collections of any law school in California. The Schaber Library has served generations of law students, alumni and members of the legal community, yet changes in technology, teaching and research modes make now the right time to develop a new Legal Studies Center (LSC).
