San Francisco Law School thrives on the variety of its population. Since its earliest days, the Law School has been a model of diversity. Our students make the decision to study law, often at great personal sacrifice and inconvenience to their families. They come seeking to fulfill a desire for a legal career, or as an enhancement to their established business or occupation. Since San Francisco Law School is an evening law school, its program spans four years. Classes are held four nights a week. Some classes may be offered in the summer. San Francisco Law School offers courses in all subjects taught by the California Bar Examination. Several electives are offer each semester.
