Basic Information

UCLA is the highest ranked law school in Southern California, placing 15th in the most recent U.S. News & World Report ranking.

The law school, which is on the huge UCLA campus in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, is the regional leader when it comes to reputation and LSAT and GPA scores. But it is second to USC Law in employment, and third in bar passage.

And the public school is not cheap — running a little over $45,000 a year, second highest in the region.

UCLA created policy centers and think tanks in the 1990s with the aim of enabling outstanding faculty and intellectual leaders to gather and focus on major policy issues free of ideology and partisan influence. This movement continues on campus with race studies, sexual orientation law. public interest law and environmental studies.

The school offers certificates in environmental law, entertainment law, business law, taxation and public policy.

As the first public law school in Southern California and the youngest top-ranked law school in the United States, UCLA Law is an innovative institution that embodies the University of California commitment to teaching, research and public service.
