La Verne Law alumni now number more than 1,300 with more than 35 distinguished jurists currently sitting or having sat on the bench.

Our talented students hail from some of the best undergraduate institutions in the country, including local universities such as UCLA, UC Irvine, and UC Riverside. Here at La Verne Law, the student body is highly competitive, excelling in both oral advocacy skills honed through moot court competitions and writing skills evidenced by publication of their articles in law reviews around the country. The most recently admitted class boasts a median LSAT score of 153 and a GPA of 3.07, making La Verne Law competitive with other ABA law schools.

If you find that your schedule does not permit your office to participate in Spring OCI, please feel free to utilize our resume collect services or our job posting service on the forms provided, both at no charge to your office.
