Wikipedia.org says the following about the school: ''Originally founded in 1924, the school merged with and became part of the University of the Pacific in 1966. The university also runs an Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco, California. The current dean of McGeorge School of Law is former CIA General Counsel Elizabeth Rindskopf Parker.''

In 1921, Stanford Law School graduate and Standard Oil executive Verne Adrian McGeorge began teaching night classes to law students Sacramento, California. The school, formally established in 1924, was named in honor of Professor McGeorge. It merged in 1966 with the University of the Pacific to become Pacific McGeorge.

In 1969, McGeorge earned full accreditation by the American Bar Association. The school joined the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) in 1974. It also has a chapter of the Order of the Coif, a national law school honorary society founded for the purposes of encouraging legal scholarship and advancing the ethical standards of the legal profession.

According to U.S. News & World Report's annual guide to ''America's Best Graduate Schools'', McGeorge was once again recently ranked among the nation's Top 20 in both Advocacy and International Law programs.

According to the April 22nd sacbee.com article, ''Dean of McGeorge law school to step down'', the school's current dean, Elizabeth Rindskopf Parker is slated to leave McGeorge shortly.

Parker made many changes to the school, most notably by bringing many new programs to the school, including various legal clinics. She also ''began collaborations with legal scholars in other countries'' and created mentoring programs in cooperation with local high schools.

Maria Pallavicini, provost of University of the Pacific was quoted as saying: ''Dean Parker has led the Pacific McGeorge School of Law to new heights in teaching, scholarship and community profile.''

Before coming to McGeorge, Parker was general counsel for the University of Wisconsin system, which included 26 campuses. She also worked in private practice, focusing on public policy and international trade issues. She served as a lawyer for several federal agencies for over ten years, including the National Security Agency, the Department of State and the CIA.

Perhaps the message in her letter to those visiting the McGeorge website says it best: ''I want to personally ensure that you become the well-trained, effective and ethical professional and leader that our world needs and for which Pacific McGeorge is justly proud.''
