Meet our Dean
Hi, I’m Sean Scott, president and dean of California Western School of Law. I’d like to start by saying, welcome. I’ve been where you are; I know how exciting—and often overwhelming—the law school journey is. The step you’re taking now by exploring your law school options is one of the most important you will take.
I would like to share with you why I chose to come to California Western to serve as president and dean. I knew that only an institution that valued social justice, academic excellence, and innovation would be the right fit for me. I was impressed by the work California Western’s programs and clinics are doing to serve their communities both here and abroad, dealing with critical issues including criminal, immigration, and intellectual property law, to name just a few. In these hands-on environments, students learn how to think creatively to solve challenging problems.
I was inspired by the faculty and their commitment to both legal scholarship and legal education. Their areas of focus are varied, and they use their expertise to help prepare their students for success not only on the bar exam, but also in practice. A supportive and inclusive community is also important to me. California Western is among the top law schools in the country for diversity. Our students come from many places and situations, and their professional goals differ. We believe that the work of every student is important, and we strive to support all students during the demanding endeavor of law school.
