Why Chapman Law?

Personalized Education

Chapman University's Dale E. Fowler School of Law has earned a unique reputation for its collegial and collaborative students, accessible faculty, and supportive staff. The law school boasts a 7-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio, offering smaller class sizes and greater opportunities to work closely with faculty and administrators.

Collaborative Environment

Our diverse student body combined with our small classes enables you to connect across borders and backgrounds, opening your experience to different cultures and ways of viewing the world. Not only do we strive to connect academic areas of inquiry through interdisciplinary study, we also work to connect students to faculty and the university to the community, so that your education is personal, relevant and engaged in the larger world.

Fantastic Location

The law school is on the beautiful Chapman University campus in the heart of Orange County, California. Just steps away from the restaurants and shops of Orange’s Historic Old Towne Plaza, Chapman’s stately, palm-treed campus is a centerpiece of this comfortable mid-sized city. Ideally situated within an hour’s drive of Los Angeles, our location provides easy access to LA and Hollywood internships, beautiful beaches, Disneyland, mountains, desert, and Orange County’s federal and state court system.
