McGeorge School of Law
The school that eventually became McGeorge began in 1921 when Stanford Law School graduate and Standard Oil executive Verne Adrian McGeorge began teaching law students at night in downtown Sacramento, California. After its formal establishment as a school in 1924, this Sacramento Law School, subsequently renamed in Professor McGeorge’s honor as the “McGeorge School of Law,” merged with the University of the Pacific in 1966 and came to be known as “Pacific McGeorge.”  McGeorge became an integral part of the University of the Pacific in 1991.
The college is famous for its J.S.D. degree program in International Water Law.
