Discover the Santa Clara Difference: 
A School with a Mission

Balance Your Work & Family Life with the Study of Law

Why Santa Clara Law?

Students attend class in a hybrid format; meeting at the beginning of each semester for a week-long intensive, then one weekend (Fri-Sun) per month for the remainder of the semester.

This schedule, along with asynchronous sessions will allow you to complete an ABA accredited law degree. The SCU Flex J.D. will allow you to experience the same campus culture, but with the flexibility and schedule you need.

Silicon Valley's New Hybrid, Part-Time Law School Program

Alumni Perspective:

“The Tech Edge J.D. Program shaped my Silicon Valley legal career by exposing me to issues and cross functional projects that broadened my legal thinking and prepared me for real-world work.

Having two mentors from top Bay Area tech companies provided me with a unique perspective that other students may not have had access to, and it helped me attain an in-house legal counsel role straight out of law school."
