Public Interest Law
Golden Gate University School of Law is consistently ranked one of the best public interest law schools in the country. Last year, the National Jurist found that Golden Gate University was one of the two best in California. Each year, a comparatively large percentage of Golden Gate University graduates directly enter the public and nonprofit sectors. It is no surprise that many of the region’s public interest leaders are graduates of GGU.
