What our alumni are saying
"The best thing about attending McGeorge was how engaging the professors and staff are with the students. They don't just want you to graduate with a degree, they want you to be successful beyond the University of Pacific, McGeorge School of Law."
-Vanessa Adame, '18, Master of Public Policy
"I chose McGeorge because I have a background in environmental science, and California really sets the stage for environmental policy in the nation. I wanted to be at the heart of things in Sacramento."
