The demands and complexities of a global economy require a strong basis in business law. The Business Law Concentration is for students interested in pursuing a general business law practice, or for those wanting to specialize in entertainment law, employment law, banking law, real estate law, or other types of business law.

Field Placements and Externships — Students will perform on-site legal work as externs under the supervision of field placement supervisors in government agencies or non-profit entities which specialize in business law, including agencies which collect state or federal taxes.
Students may also choose to staff a pro bono legal assistance program which provides legal assistance to low income taxpayers who have cases pending before the California Board of Equalization.
Pacific McGeorge Legal Clinics — Through a variety of legal clinics, our students enrich themselves both academically and personally by helping the community with a variety of legal challenges. Many clients who seek assistance from our legal clinics are unable to afford representation from private attorneys, and this innovative program provides students a learning environment that promotes real-world education and instills the value of service.
In a faculty-supervised, law office setting, students strengthen the connection between theory and practice, learn practical lawyering skills, learn how to represent clients, and begin to develop their professional identity as a future attorney.
