With a long-standing emphasis on diversity, public service and innovative programs, and a campus featuring a world-renowned Art Deco landmark, Southwestern Law School reflects the vibrancy of Los Angeles and provides an ideal setting for legal studies and research. Founded more than 100 years ago as an independent, nonprofit, nonsectarian institution, Southwestern is the only law school to offer four J.D. courses of study that differ in scheduling and instructional approach, including full- and part-time programs, as well as a unique two-year accelerated curriculum. Concurrent three- and four-year JD/MBA programs as well as two LL.M. programs are also offered. The law school has strong ties to the legal, business and civic sectors, and its Biederman Entertainment and Media Law Institute is closely linked to the entertainment industry in Hollywood and internationally.

Southwestern's faculty are passionate educators, eminent scholars and caring mentors. They include internationally recognized experts in antitrust, civil rights, criminal justice, entertainment and media, environmental, ethics, human rights, intellectual property, international, technology and trial advocacy, among other areas of the law. The Southwestern Legal Studies Research Paper Series contains abstracts, works in progress, and published papers from Southwestern's faculty and community.
