The University of West Los Angeles will relocate its School of Law and School of Paralegal Studies from Inglewood to West Los Angeles, the school has announced.

In a statement, President Robert Brown said the school has signed a letter of intent with Santa Monica College to lease a building owned by SMC at 3171 S. Bundy Drive in West Los Angeles. The building is currently unused office space, the statement said.

UWLA will continue to offer classes at a campus located in the Warner Center in Woodland Hills, but has sold its Inglewood campus, the statement said.

The move is expected to be made at the end of the year, the schoolís statement explained.

The school was founded in 1966 and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California. It acquired the San Fernando Valley College of Law in 2002.

The late Justice Bernard Jefferson served for 15 years as the schoolís president after retiring from this districtís Court of Appeal.
