Juris Doctor
Master of Legal Studies

Our Juris Doctor prepares students for the California State Bar Examination and the practice of law. Many law students secure a legal education to assist them in business, civic, and related pursuits. Our Master of Legal Studies is a graduate legal degree for those who interact professionally with the law, but who are not seeking to become lawyers themselves. Tuition varies per program and fees are minimal and clear-cut.

Juris Doctor

Our juris doctor is designed to instill an understanding of law as well as analytical skills developed through a combination of scholastic and practical education. The Drivon School of Law recognizes its students to be as potential shapers of law and social policy as well as practitioners of law.
