» Academic and Co-Curricular Programs

The Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law’s academic programs provide the best of both worlds: foundational accredited legal instruction coupled with a varied selection of certificate programs and joint degrees. Our highly experienced professors provide supportive and personalized education in classes with consistently small faculty/student ratios. 

Chapman also provides students with a number of academic resources that provide real-world legal experience to help maximize their law school education. The Fowler School of Law has three competition boards: Moot Court, Mock Trial and Alternative Dispute Resolution. In addition, the law school hosts a number of clinics in which students can develop a variety of legal skills, including the Alona Cortese Elder Law Center, Criminal Prosecution Clinic, Entertainment Contracts Law Clinic, and Tax Law Clinic. Also, law students can gain academic credit while participating in externships.
