From its storied Gold Rush days to serving as the dynamic seat of the world's 9th largest economy, Sacramento is a city where history is made and futures await. Its leaf-shaded, walkable/bikeable neighborhoods, growing art and music scene, professional sports, recreation, and hip and happening nightlife is the perfect blend of old-meets-new culture, and provides a vibrant yet welcoming backdrop for pursuing your educational and career goals.
California's Capital City
Pacific McGeorge is the only ABA-accredited law school located in the capital — a mere three miles from the Capitol — a huge plus if a career in government law and policy is your goal. And, our field placement program offers opportunities for resume-building experience at over 100 state and federal government agencies, courts and nonprofits throughout the Capitol Corridor.
If the higher cost of living associated with the Bay Area or Southern California is a factor, Sacramento has them all beat. Here, you'll enjoy sun — more than 300 days a year — affordable living, culture, great food and recreation — in other words, plenty of things to do when you're not studying. And, if wanderlust strikes, Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, Napa Valley and Yosemite are all within easy driving distance.
