Our School of Law programs include a variety of rigorous legal courses that meet the unique needs of our students and our community. While we are most known for our Juris Doctor degree, we also offer a Master of Legal Studies. 

Juris Doctor

Juris Doctor

Aspiring lawyers are encouraged to enroll in our Juris Doctor program. This is a comprehensive 4-year evening course of study that prepares graduates to pass the California Bar Examination and practice law as licensed attorneys. Juris Doctor students also have the option of concurrent enrollment in our Master of Legal Studies program.

Master of Legal Studies

The Master of Legal Studies program provides a foundational understanding of the law to professionals outside the judicial system. Graduates are equipped with an awareness of how the law shapes professional fields such as finance, insurance, marketing, and human resources. This course of study may be taken concurrently with the Juris Doctor program.

 

What Our School of Law Programs Offer

At Empire College School of Law, we believe the value of a legal education extends further than a career as an attorney. Our high-quality Juris Doctor and Master of Legal Studies programs provide students with the critical thinking, self-discipline, and professional polish necessary to succeed in any endeavor they choose to pursue.

 

Exceptional Benefits

In addition, students in our Juris Doctor program are awarded tremendous networking advantages in the Northern California area. Empire College School of Law graduates make up approximately 25 percent of the Sonoma County Bar Association and hold judicial positions in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Lassen, Calaveras, and Merced County. The close-knit relationships our students share with these professionals significantly enhance their performance on the bar exam, as well as their opportunities for employment.

 

Proven Success

Empire College School of Law is proud to be regularly recognized as one of the top state-accredited law schools in Northern California. However, we prefer to measure our success by the success of our students. Since 1973, approximately 76 percent of our graduates have passed the California Bar Examination. This is one of the highest pass rates for law schools accredited by the California Committee of Bar Examiners.

Empire has a great reputation. I liked that the professors are practicing attorneys so you actually have instructors talking about what it is to be attorneys vs. other law schools where the professors have just always been professors.

Empire offers students the opportunity to build their reputations within the legal community while still in school. The clinical and internship opportunities available through Empire introduced me to a number of areas of law and helped determine the path I would take after graduation.
