UC Hastings produces committed, capable legal professionals well versed in fields as diverse as technology, health care, international law, and government.
UC Hastings graduates are legal professionals with a clear sense of the social, economic, business and cultural contexts in which the law is applied. That sense, along with their passion for both the theory and the practice of the law, makes them unparalleled advocates for their clients, regardless of whether those clients are entrepreneurs or immigrants, inventors or entertainers, the high and mighty or the average citizen.
A UC Hastings education starts with a firm grounding in the fundamentals — tort law, criminal law, civil procedure — and builds on that foundation with a choice of nine interdisciplinary concentrations, where you can gain career-specific experience in areas like the health sciences, social justice and international law.
With such a diverse, “living” legal education, it’s no surprise that UC Hastings graduates not only thrive in traditional legal careers, but find crossover success as health care policymakers, bioethics experts, international human rights advocates, digital media entrepreneurs and much more.
