UCLA School of Law is proud to have some of the nation's most diverse, intelligent and promising students of law. As an institution, we are committed to making a world-class legal education available to men and women, regardless of their background. This commitment to access is part of the public mission we embrace that makes our school so distinctive.
There are approximately 950 J.D. students enrolled across all three years of study. Each August, about 300 women and men enter our community as first-year students, approximately 35 enter our second-year class as transfer students and approximately 100 enter our master of laws program. All degree programs at UCLA School of Law are offered on a full-time basis only. The academic year, comprising two semesters, extends from mid-August through mid-May. There are no evening or summer study programs available.
UCLA School of Law also boasts over 40 student-run organizations and over 13 student-run journals, on a variety of topics that affect today's world.
In order to improve access to students from all walks of life, we are proud of our Law Fellows Outreach Program, which reaches out to high-potential high school and college students with strong academic backgrounds who have had limited exposure to collegiate education and helps them understand what they need to do to succeed at top national law schools.
We also have a number of opportunities for our students to get involved with the school and the campus beyond.
