Set Yourself Apart with a Degree from Empire College School of Law in Santa Rosa, California

Here at Empire College School of Law, students do more than memorize legal theory — they learn how to apply it. Our Elder Law Clinic was one of the first of its kind, and the practical experience it and our other five clinics provide to our students has enabled them to trophy at several statewide Traynor Moot Court competitions. In addition, our courses are taught by practicing attorneys and judges who bring valuable insight to the classroom.

Accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California since 1982 to offer a Juris Doctor program, Empire College School of Law’s degree-granting authority qualifies graduates to take the California Bar Exam and obtain admission to practice law in the state. Empire College School of Law’s Master of Legal Studies program is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), a nationally recognized accrediting agency by the United States Department of Education.

Conveniently located an hour north of the Bay Area in Sonoma County, our Santa Rosa campus is only a short drive from Greater San Francisco. Call 888-714-9628 to schedule a campus visit today.

School of Law Programs

Empire College School of Law offers two intensive, high-quality programs: a Juris Doctor and a Master of Legal Studies. Both programs are available in the evening so that our students may complete their education while attending to family and professional matters.


Alicia Bronbach, Esq.

(Class of 2006)
One of the advantages of Empire as a night vs. traditional law school is the real-life experience that most students have between college and law school. Being a second-career lawyer, you bring a lot more value to the table and to a prospective employer than you may appreciate.

Jacqueline Rosario, Esq

(Class of 2014)
I wanted to be an attorney because I wanted to make a difference in this world, and I feel that I am doing that. It is very rewarding, and I am blessed to be living my dream. I recommend to everybody considering law school that if you want to do this and have the will to do it, do it.

Empire Law School provided the instruction, guidance, and motivation that I needed to pass the California State Bar Examination on the first try, despite the rigors of managing a full-time career and family commitments in parallel. I would absolutely recommend Empire Law School to anyone looking for relevant and masterful instruction in the subjects of law.
