Choosing a law school in a region where the job market is promising is a primary reason to attend SJCL. San Joaquin College of Law has produced talented graduates who hold prestigious and influential positions both locally and throughout the State. Located midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, San Joaquin College of Law is the only law school in a 120 mile radius. The population in the San Joaquin Valley area is one of the fastest growing in the United States.

Employment opportunities continue to expand to meet the region’s needs. Unlike in Northern and Southern California where numerous law schools are clustered in each area and the job market is saturated, legal jobs here are readily available.
