In our video, The First Year Law Experience – Fowler School of Law, our professors highlight the first year experience at Fowler School of Law and explain what sets us apart. Our curriculum provides a rigorous mix of bar tested doctrine and practical skills programs designed to prepare students for long-term success in a collaborative and welcoming environment.

With one of the best faculty/student ratios among American Bar Association (ABA) approved law schools, the Fowler School of Law offers smaller class sizes and greater access to faculty, both in and out of the classroom. Our acclaimed professors include former U.S. Supreme Court clerks, a Nobel laureate, noted scholars, and seasoned judges and lawyers. The law school also provides a world class research library and an impressive array of student organizations that offer the best combination of camaraderie and legal exploration. Our pro bono clinics, wide-ranging externship opportunities, skills labs and competition teams allow students to hone their practice skills.

In addition to our supportive faculty and staff, Fowler School of Law provides an Academic Achievement Program that is designed to help students seamlessly move through the first year of law school. The program offers one-on-one faculty mentoring, undergraduate-to-graduate transition workshops, additional instruction from advanced students (Academic Fellows), assigned study groups, and Bar Exam preparation. The unique in-house Bar Exam Preparation Program complements traditional doctrinal law school coursework, with a goal of fully and adequately preparing students for the California and out-of-state bar examinations. For the fourth consecutive year, Fowler Law alumni have exceeded the California American Bar Association (ABA) accredited law school pass rate.
