San Francisco has three law schools, which enable students to earn a J.D. and qualify to practice law. The San Francisco law schools are:

  • University of California, Hastings College of Law
  • University of San Francisco School of Law
  • Golden Gate University Law School

Other career colleges such as Heald College teach law to students but do not offer a Juris Doctorate (J.D.) degree upon graduation.
