Humphreys College Laurence Drivon School of Law is an independent, non-profit law school located in Stockton, California. The School of Law is accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges but neither has nor seeks approval by the American Bar Association.
The School of Law was founded in 1951 as a part of Humphreys College; a second law school was later founded in Fresno, but it is no longer in existence. Originally called Humphreys College School of Law, it was renamed Humphreys College Laurence Drivon School of Law to honor the passing of long-time supporter, Laurence Drivon. This coincided with the move from shared facilities to its own building in 2004. The building was dedicated in a ceremony by then-Mayor Edward Chavez in 2005 after construction had completed on its courtroom – dedicated as the "Carcione Courtroom" – after Joseph Carcione (of KCBS fame) by his son, attorney Joseph William Carcione, Jr.
- John R. Humphreys, Jr. 1951–1980
- Robert G. Humphreys 1980–present
The School of Law hosts a local chapter of the Inns of Court. A small claims clinic is provided as a service to the community on a monthly basis utilizing students as advisers under the direction of professors and instructors, most of whom remain active and practicing attorneys. Since 2007, the School of Law has hosted the Court-provided education seminars for Grand Jury appointees. The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is hosted quarterly by the School of Law on behalf of the Law School Admission Council (LSAC).
