San Francisco Law School is a private, non-profit law school in San Francisco, California. Founded in 1909, the law school became non-profit in 1941 and moved to its present location in 1968. The law school offers a three year full-time program and a four year part-time evening program leading to a Juris Doctor degree.

The Law School's alumni include late California Governor Edmund "Pat" Brown ('27) and former Lieutenant Governor of California, Leo T. McCarthy and Undersecretary of the United States Department of Energy Joseph F. Salgado.[2]

In July 2010, the law school completed a merger to become a graduate school of Alliant International University. The law school retains its name and current location.

San Francisco Law School has been accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners[3] of the State Bar of California since 1937, but does not have[4] or currently seek approval by the American Bar Association. In addition, through Alliant, San Francisco Law School is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, thus allowing students to apply for federal assistance programs.[5]

In 2014, San Diego Law School opened as a branch campus of San Francisco Law School and is located on Alliant University's San Diego campus. San Diego Law School offers a four year part-time evening program and is accredited by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State of California.
