Academically, the school emphasizes entertainment and media law, and students take advantage of the school's location in the middle of Los Angeles, near film studios and the movie industry in general. Southwestern Law School has the largest contingent of entertainment and media law faculty in the country, based primarily at its Biederman Entertainment and Media Law Institute. After graduation, many students accept jobs with Los Angeles government agencies, but they're locked in competition with graduates from L.A.'s other law schools for employment slots in city law firms. Southwestern has no on-campus housing, so all students commute from around the Los Angeles area.
