History[edit] Founded in 1927, the PCU originally consisted of an undergraduate program along with graduate schools in business, divinity and law. However, all but the School of Law closed during the Great Depression. World War II nearly eliminated the School of Law but for the persistence of then Dean Carl Manson, who taught all the classes while the other professors were off at war. Manson continued as Dean until his death in 1980. In 1981 Dean Irving Schleimer, previously a member of the faculty, became the PCU's new dean.


Notable alumni[edit] One of the first African-American Superior Court Judges in Southern California, William A. Ross, was a PCU graduate, as was the first woman Superior Court Judge, Kathleen Parker. During a period when, for example, women made up only 2.7% of the profession as late as 1963, PCU was graduating 30% or more women each year. PCU Alumnus Charles Parkin is currently the City Attorney for the City of Long Beach


Accreditation[edit] The PCU School of Law was granted accreditation by the Committee of Bar Examiners[2] of the State Bar of California on September 25, 2010. Due to its mission as an evening-only law school, PCU is not eligible to apply for accreditation by the American Bar Association


In popular culture[edit] A diploma from Pacific Coast University can be seen on the wall of Sam Spade's office, approximately two minutes into the film The Maltese Falcon.
