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.

Angela Emerick, Esq.

(Class of 2015)

"Being born in Australia and becoming a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2009, I understand the process and honor of becoming an American citizen and am proud to help those in their quest to become citizens and better their lives."

Daryl Reese, Esq.

(Class of 2014)

"I decided to enroll in Law School when I was 50 years old having enjoyed a full career in the nonprofit sector. Now I have a robust business and nonprofit law practice serving clients throughout the State of California and I am loving it. I could never have made that kind of career transition if it had not been for Empire Law School. The opportunity to take evening courses and at a cost far less than other law schools, and to do so in my own community made my career shift affordable, enjoyable, and attainable."

Orchid Vaghti, Esq.

(Class of 2010)

"There are not that many new lawyers who have the experience to go to trial. They would not be ready for it. Seeing the practical points of the legal process through her Empire education gave Orchid an advantage."
