Life at UCLA Law

A Location Like No Other

UCLA School of Law is located in the heart of the thriving metropolis of Los Angeles on the spectacular UCLA campus – the largest campus within the UC system and one of the world’s leading research universities. With an interdisciplinary tradition that offers partnerships across the campus and a commitment to public service, the UCLA network lifts your education well beyond the law school.

Sophisticated Culture and Natural Splendor

As one of the world’s most dynamic cultural centers, Los Angeles offers a rich artistic, social and culinary scene, with access to renowned museums, theaters, restaurants, sporting events and musical performances. At the same time, the region’s extraordinary topography and microclimates allow students to enjoy a wide range of recreational activities, from surfing to skiing, mountain biking to hiking, all year long.

Club and Society

Students have the possibility to join a variety of groups focused among others academics, sports and wellness.

Our more than 50 student organizations offer many opportunities for students to engage with the diverse community of Los Angeles, build connections with practicing lawyers and potential employers, and form lifelong bonds with their peers.

Student organizations host lively debates, meaningful community service activities and stimulating social events. Whether organizing a national Latino/a law student conference through Latinx Law Students Association, working on one of our dozen student-edited journals, or attending a panel discussion on high art and intellectual property through the Art Law Society, UCLA Law students benefit from immersive learning experiences and valuable networking opportunities.
