GGU Law Honors Lawyering Program
Golden Gate University School of Law is excep- tionally proud of our Honors Lawyering Program (HLP), which takes a unique approach to legal education. Our innovative HLP track integrates the theory, skills, and values learned in the classroom with actual hands-on work in the legal community-- a modern version of the traditional apprenticeship.
Students who apply and are selected for this highly competitive and rigorous program complete the regular first-year curriculum, followed by an eight- week intensive summer program. HLP students then spend their fall semester participating in full-time apprenticeships in law firms, courts, government agencies, and grassroots advocacy organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area and around the world. The combination of legal scholarship and practical training provides HLP participants with a level of knowledge and legal skills that is unmatched in a traditional legal studies program.
