With a campus situated in the heart of Silicon Valley, Santa Clara University School of Law has an ideal location for its well-established technology and intellectual property law programs. Santa Clara Law offers students an academically rigorous program including certificates in high tech law, international law, privacy law, public interest and social justice law, as well as numerous graduate and joint degree options.

Interim dean Anna Han said: "Santa Clara's goal is to train lawyers competence, conscience, and compassion. We are proud of our graduates who are known to be prepared for practice and embody the 3 C's."

Last year, the school moved to a new 96,000 square-foot building, one that cost $58 million and is large enough to house nearly all of the law school’s resources. Earlier, the law school was contained in several campus buildings.

In addition to its IP center, Santa Clara also has an international and global law center and a center for public interest and social justice — all of which helps the school honor its Jesuit mission of helping those in need. 

The school earned an A- for diversity in preLaw's most recent analysis of the nation's law schools. It earned a B+ in the magazine's ranking of best schools for practical training, as well.
