School of Law: Academics

Theory meets practice: GGU Law's interdisciplinary focus on legal study emphasizes practical skills training and experiential learning. Students gain vital practical training through our diverse externships, award-winning on-site legal clinics, and other unique programs.

STUDY ABROAD

With increased globalization, Golden Gate Law graduates may deal with foreign legal systems and work with lawyers and clients from other countries in their practices. Learning about international legal systems is therefore an increasingly important aspect of legal education. In addition to Golden Gate Law's many international law courses on campus, an excellent way for students to become familiar with foreign legal systems is through study at a foreign law school.
