The objective of IPSL, based on its mission, is to educate its students in the various bodies of law as they exist in the State of California and the United States Federal Courts and to give the student the tools to analyze issues, understand and frame arguments on both sides of a question and to generally provide effective counsel to clients in a variety of practical, real life issues and matters. This is achieved through the academic emphasis on the “core” legal courses necessary for any active practitioner to understand and master.

It is expected that the graduates of IPSL will be successful in their understanding of the law and the legal process. The IPSL graduates will be as fully prepared to effectively represent clients in California or regarding California law as would any new graduate of any Full Time Law School located anywhere within the United States.
