About The University of West Los Angeles

The mission of the University of West Los Angeles (UWLA) is to be a leader in offering affordable legal education to men and women from diverse educational- occupational- cultural- and ethnic backgrounds- without regard to age- sexual orientation or disability—especially to those who must study part-time—so as to contribute to the democratization of the legal community.

The Mission is Action—Passing Knowledge and Wisdom to the Next Generation

We apply our mission of being a leading Los Angeles law school to our programs- practices and policies in practical ways by striving to achieve these goals:

To provide an effective and relevant curriculum and optimized learning environment to assist students in achieving their educational objectives
To offer academic support and mentorship to help students successfully complete their programs
To maintain admissions policies and program scheduling to offer access to qualified students who may not otherwise have an opportunity to pursue a legal education
To maintain a professional and well-qualified full-time and adjunct faculty
To provide students with experience in practical applications of the law
To offer to the community continuing legal education- non-credit law-related courses- and a free legal aid clinic
To enhance and sustain the active involvement of students- alumni- faculty- administrators- and members of the Board of Trustees in promoting the welfare of the UWLA community
