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.


One of the things that I appreciate about going to Empire College was that the training was so hands-on.

Yesenia Avalos

Medical Assistant Coordinator, West County Health Centers
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.

By assisting clients at the Self-Help Access Center, students learn about law, human nature, society and challenges people face on a daily basis.

Michelle Brown

Empire Law Graduate

Empire is perfect for individuals seeking a practical, cost-effective legal education taught by committed practitioners. Empire enabled me to grow and learn through experiences with the Superior Court’s Office and the District Attorney’s office as a student and then launch into a rewarding career serving as General Counsel for American Home Shield >Corporation, The ServiceMaster Franchise Group, Graham Packaging Company, and currently, Evergreen Packaging.

Mark Lightfoot

General Counsel, Evergreen Packaging

Walking across the graduation stage already employed with a full-time job was very gratifying.

I had a lot of friends go through Empire who had a great experience. If you want a solid IT foundation to get out in the workforce, it’s the place to be.
