At Empire College School of Law, we believe in offering an excellent academic experience for busy students who dream of earning their Juris Doctor degree. You should not be expected to put the rest of your life on hold to pursue your law career ambitions, and Empire makes it possible for you to balance your responsibilities with your education. That’s just one of the many benefits of our JD program. Read on to learn what other advantages our students can enjoy.
We believe students learn best from successful and experienced professionals. Our professors are a talented team of judges and attorneys from the North Bay area, and they have years of real-world knowledge to bring to the classroom. Teaching within their areas of practice, our instructors demonstrate how the theory you learn in class applies to everyday life. They are professionals who create a personalized classroom environment.
Our classes are designed to give students the confidence to handle the demands and responsibilities of a legal career. In the first year, students take introductory courses such as Legal Research and Writing and Criminal Law. As they progress, JD students explore topics such as criminal law, wills and trusts, and business organizations in more depth. With a wide array of electives available, students can supplement the required curriculum with their own areas of interest. Disability law, environmental law, and intellectual property law are just a few of the areas in which students can specialize.
Most law schools prepare their students with the theoretical knowledge they’ll need to practice law. While we certainly strive to prepare our students with the information they need to be successful or pass the Bar exam, we also believe in hands-on practice. With our law clinics, students gain practical experience under the supervision of practicing lawyers. From Elder Law to Family Law to Immigration and Disability, our clinics provide the community with an important resource while giving our students necessary experience. Clinical education in public or private law offices and other service-learning opportunities are also available to help students learn by doing.
We know not everyone can ignore their real-life responsibilities to earn their Juris Doctor degree. That’s why Empire College School of Law is an evening program. With 4 years of evening courses, students can graduate with their JD degree and prepare to practice law. This curriculum allows you to maintain a current job or care for your family while you go to law school.

"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."
"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."
"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."
