The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) provides funding to students whose lives have been disrupted as a result of the coronavirus global pandemic.

2020 Commencement

Unfortunately we have had to postpone the May 31 Law School commencement ceremony due to the risks associated with COVID-19 and based on guidance from public health officials. With that in mind, we plan to hold our 2020 commencement ceremony in September/October to honor our graduates, so long as it is safe to do so based on guidance from public health officials. More details surrounding the ceremonies will be forthcoming as we draw nearer to the date.


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

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.

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.

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