Capital Lawyering Program


Through the Capital Lawyering Program, a select group of J.D. students have exclusive access to externships, mentors, engagement and networking activities, and targeted professional development while they pursue the Capital Certificate in Public Law & Policy.

Pacific McGeorge's Sacramento location is an ideal setting to study government and policy law. Sacramento is the capital city of the most populous state in the nation, and nowhere else can students of the law gain access to power and influence as readily as at Pacific McGeorge.

Our unrivaled network of alumni leaders at all levels of government in California provide our Capital Lawyering students with guidance and opportunities as students develop the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in many types of government and public lawyering careers.

The Capital Lawyering Program consists of:

  • A curriculum of 14 units, comprised of required and elective courses.
  • Capital engagement and networking activities, sequenced as Capital Lawyering I, II & III.
