About Us

School Purpose

INLAND VALLEY UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF LAW is striving to become one the few schools in California where a student can go from a Paralegal/Legal Assistant certification, attain an Associate Degree in Paralegal Studies and finally to Attorney at Law in a single institution.

To achieve these goals our instructors are all dedicated and knowledgeable in both the law and in the practical, including forms, discovery and court systems Students demonstrate their knowledge through writing assignments and preparation of outlines. Students progress are measured through in class preparation, testing, and outlines of each and every course. Our students recieve free tutoring as needed to insure total and complete understanding of the law, forms, and the court system.

School Mission

Inland Valley University College of Law was founded in 1992 to provide quality legal education at affordable prices for students wishing to enter the fast growing legal field. While some schools teach only theoretical concepts, employers demand knowledge of the practical as well.

Inland Valley University’s staff and faculty have the ability to teach the theoretical as well as the practical aspects of the law. The job environment required our studends to be fully knowledgable not only in all areas of the law but students must have the ability to apply this knowledge in terms of required forms and court policy and procedure.

At IVU, we understand that students expect to be fully knowledgeable in all of the areas of the law we teach but also to have the ability to apply that knowledge in a practical way. Inland Valley University strives to provide these critical thinking skills in all of the areas of instruction.

  1. Knowledge – the mastering of facts and principles of the subject.
  2. Conclusion – using analysis to reach legal conclusions.
  3. Analysis – relationships between concepts and factual situations.
  4. Synthesis – putting together two parts to make a whole.

Inland Valley University College of Law understands that rote memorization is simply not sufficient to prepare a student for today’s fast paced workforce.

Our staff is dedicated to ensure academic freedom of both staff and students.

The University’s commitment to diversify ensures that a wide variety of viewpoints are present at the University. Instructors encourage students to espouse varying viewpoints on both the theoretical as well as practical applications of the subject matters being taught.

Our Goals

School Goals

  1. To provide a curriculum that stresses legal skills, sound analytical reasoning, as opposed to rote memorization of facts.
  2. To uphold admission standards that are designed to enroll only qualified students who are capable of pursuing the courses of instruction.
  3. To encourage the development and incorporation of progressive teaching methods, which enhance and encourage the learning process.
  4. To consistently review new legal legislation and case law in order to update and remain current with our curriculum.
  5. To access the effectiveness of the institution’s training, we will audit graduates in their work environment in order to reevaluate our curriculum to insure that the program remains responsive to the overall needs of the profession.
  6. To maintain a minimum overall retention rate of seventy-five percent (75%) of students enrolled in our diploma programs and to maintain an eighty percent (80%) placement rate for graduating students.
  7. To encourage our staff and faculty to have memberships in professional organizations and participate in relevant educational workshops, conferences and seminars.
  8. To provide students with free personal tutoring and guidance to help them through any programs in which they are having difficulties.
  9. To maintain quality of opportunity in admission, retention, employees, financial aid and student placement that is without discrimination as to race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, marital status, sexual orientation or physical handicap.
    10.To actively achieve and maintain the required accreditations for the institution.
    11.To balance the institution’s educational and corporate operation with a business plan, which would allow the corporation to operate in a profitable and ethical manner and by so doing achieve our stated objectives.

Upon graduation from the Paralegal/Legal Assistant program, the student will have a portfolio of his work, including the law court systems and forms of every subject taken. This portfolio acts as a valuable resource, not only for future reference, but also as a tool to find employment.

Any student who graduates from our school is encouraged to audit, free of charge, any course he or she wishes to take over in order to stay up to date on the latest legal developments. This program foster lifetime learning skills, which stay with our students throughout their careers.
