Established in 1878 as the original law department of the University of California, UC Hastings is the oldest law school in California and the first law school established west of the Rocky Mountains. UC Hastings’ legacy of producing highly skilled practitioners of the bench and bar is a matter of record within the legal profession.
UC Hastings’ location is one of its greatest assets. Few law schools, if any, provide the variety of legal, judicial, political, and entrepreneurial entities within such close proximity of their classrooms, giving Hastings students a relevancy to their legal education that is usually hard to achieve on a college or university campus.
The law school’s location provides the opportunity to study the law in the very forum where it is practiced and determined. Situated in the heart of San Francisco, on the border of the city’s Civic Center and Tenderloin neighborhoods, the law school occupies three buildings on McAllister Street. The Civic Center is the legal epicenter of the American West, with four major courthouses, as well as San Francisco’s City Hall, the San Francisco Federal Building, and United Nations Plaza concentrated within a four-block radius of the law school. Many of San Francisco’s law firms are situated in the Financial District, located just two stops away from UC Hastings via the city’s extensive public transportation system. San Francisco is also widely regarded as the technology hub of the United States. Twitter’s world headquarters, for instance, is a short walk from the law school’s campus and many other tech companies and start-ups, such as Zynga and Airbnb, operate in the nearby South of Market (SOMA) neighborhood.
