UC Hastings was founded in 1878 as the law department of the University of California and, as such, was the first UC law school and the first law school in California. UC Hastings has a proud history. In the years following World War II, the College was known for its Sixty-Five Club, a group of eminent scholars and jurists who provided Hastings with one of the most distinguished faculties of any American law school. Today, UC Hastings' faculty is comprised of a diverse and exciting group of outstanding teachers and nationally acclaimed scholars who range in experience from entry level professors to distinguished senior professors.
