UCLA School of Law
The UCLA School of Law referred to as UCLA Law, is one of 12 professional schools at the University of California, Los Angeles. UCLA Law has been ranked by U. S. News & World Report as one of the top 20 law schools in the United States since the late 1990s, its 17,000 alumni include more judges on the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit than any other law school, as well as leaders in private law practice, government service, the judiciary and entertainment law, public interest law; as part of a renowned public university, the school's mission is to provide an excellent legal education while expanding access to the legal professional to those who otherwise would not be able to pursue a legal degree. The dean of the school is Jennifer L. Mnookin. An evidence scholar who joined the UCLA Law faculty in 2005 and became the school's ninth dean, third female dean, in 2015. Founded in 1949, the UCLA School of Law is the third oldest of the five law schools within the University of California system.
In the 1930s, initial efforts to establish a law school at UCLA went nowhere as a result of resistance from UC President Robert Gordon Sproul, because UCLA's supporters refocused their efforts on first adding medical and engineering schools. During the mid-1940s, the impetus for the creation of the UCLA School of Law emerged from outside of the UCLA community. Assemblyman William Rosenthal of Boyle Heights conceived of and fought for the creation of the first public law school in Southern California as a convenient and affordable alternative to the expensive private law school at USC. Rosenthal's first attempt in 1945 failed, but his second attempt was able to gain momentum when the State Bar of California and the UCLA Alumni Association announced their support for the bill. On July 18, 1947, Governor Earl Warren authorized the appropriation of $1 million for the construction of a new law school at UCLA by signing Assembly Bill 1361 into state law; the search for the law school's first dean delayed its opening by a year.
UCLA's Law School Planning Committee prioritized merit, while the then-conservative Regents of the University of California prioritized political beliefs. Another factor was a simultaneous deanship vacancy at Berkeley Law. Near the end of 1948, the Committee identified a sufficiently conservative candidate willing to take the job: L. Dale Coffman the dean of Vanderbilt University Law School; the Regents believed Coffman would help bring balance to the UCLA campus, which they saw as overrun by Communists. Dean Coffman was able to recruit several distinguished faculty to UCLA, including Roscoe Pound, Brainerd Currie, Rollin M. Perkins, Harold Verrall. To build a law library, he hired Thomas S. Dabagh the law librarian of the Los Angeles County Law Library; the UCLA School of Law opened in September 1949 in temporary quarters in former military barracks behind Royce Hall, moved into a permanent home upon the completion of the original Law Building in 1951. Coffman's deanship did not end well, due to his vindictive and prejudiced personality.
One sign of early trouble was when he drove out Dabagh in 1952 after they could not bridge their fundamental differences over how to run the law library, regarded around the UCLA community as contributing to Dabagh's early death in 1959. On September 21, 1955, the faculty revolted in the form of a memorandum to Chancellor Raymond B. Allen alleging that Coffman was categorically refusing to hire Jews or anyone he perceived to be leftist, that the school's reputation was deteriorating because Coffman's abrasive personality had led to excessive faculty turnover. On May 24, 1956, Coffman was stripped of his deanship after a lengthy investigation by a panel of deans of his biases and his "dictatorial and autocratic" management style, he remained on the faculty until his forced retirement in 1973, but continued to face allegations as late as 1971 that he was "an unreconstructed McCarthyite and pro-segregationist."Coffman's successor was Richard C. Maxwell, who served as the second dean of UCLA Law from 1958 to 1969.
Dean Maxwell "presided over happier, more harmonious years of institutional growth," and it was under his deanship that UCLA became "the youngest top-ranked law school in the country." Dabagh's successor, Louis Piacenza, was able to grow the law school's library collection to 143,000 volumes by May 1963, which at that time was the 14th largest law school library in the United States. By 1963, the law school had 600 students in a building designed for 550, the Law Building's deficiencies had become all too evident, such as a complete lack of air conditioning. In October 1963, the law school administration announced a major remodeling and expansion project, which added air conditioning and a new wing to the building. During the 1960s, the law school grew so that the new wing was insufficient upon its completion in January 1967. From its founding to the end of the 20th century, UCLA Law struggled with severe overcrowding, as librarians, staff, as many as 18 student organizations—at one point, more than any other law school in the United States—competed for limited space in the Law Building for books, classes and offices.
After four grueling years of construction, the chronic space shortage was relieved by the completion of the new Hugh and Hazel Darling Law Library on January 22, 2000. UCLA Law has 950 students in its Juris Doctor program and 200 students in its Masters of Law program, popular among foreign students intending to take the California Bar Exam, it offers a Doctor of Juridical Science program for students who hav
Jackie Robinson Stadium
Jackie Robinson Stadium is a college baseball stadium in Los Angeles, California, U. S. the home field of the UCLA Bruins of the Pac-12 Conference. Opened in 1981, it is the smallest stadium in the conference, with a seating capacity of 1,820, it is named after former Bruin baseball player Jackie Robinson, the first African-American Major League Baseball player of the modern era. Robinson attended UCLA from 1939–41, after graduating from Pasadena Junior College, he was the first UCLA athlete to earn varsity letters in four sports: baseball, basketball and track. He played in the major leagues for ten seasons, all with the Brooklyn Dodgers. A statue and a mural of Robinson can be found at the entrance concourse of the stadium. Jackie Robinson Stadium is located off-campus, on the west side of the Interstate 405 freeway, on the grounds of the Los Angeles Veterans Health Administration. Robinson's classmate, Hoyt Pardee, gave a gift to help with the construction of the stadium; the stadium's "Steele Field" was dedicated in honor of the Steele Foundation on May 3, 2008, prior to a game against Arizona State, for its support of the stadium.
The hitting facility at the stadium is named Rhodine Gifford Hitting Facility. Gifford graduated from the Engineering School with a BSEE degree, he was a founder of Maxim Integrated Products. A capacity crowd of 2,613 saw the Bruins defeating the defending National Champions LSU Tigers 6-3 at the Los Angeles Regional of the NCAA Baseball Tournament on June 5, 2010; the record of 2,914 fans was set on March 23, 1997 in a game against USC. In 2010, the Bruins ranked 48th among Division I baseball programs in attendance, averaging 1,178 per home game; the stadium is not to be confused with the Jackie Robinson Memorial Field at Brookside Park, next to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, where UCLA plays its home football games. On August 30, 2013, a federal judge ruled that the United States Department of Veterans Affairs misused the West Los Angeles campus where the stadium is located for a variety of uses, including the stadium, but stopped short of ordering the tenants off the property. However, the judge's ruling left open the possibility that, if not modified or reversed, UCLA could lose the right to use the stadium.

University of California, Los Angeles
The University of California, Los Angeles is a public research university in Los Angeles. It became the Southern Branch of the University of California in 1919, making it the third-oldest undergraduate campus of the 10-campus University of California system, it offers 337 graduate degree programs in a wide range of disciplines. UCLA enrolls about 31,000 undergraduate and 13,000 graduate students and had 119,000 applicants for Fall 2016, including transfer applicants, making the school the most applied-to of any American university; the university is organized into six undergraduate colleges, seven professional schools, four professional health science schools. The undergraduate colleges are the College of Science; as of 2017, 24 Nobel laureates, three Fields Medalists, five Turing Award winners, two Chief Scientists of the U. S. Air Force have been affiliated with UCLA as researchers, or alumni. Among the current faculty members, 55 have been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, 28 to the National Academy of Engineering, 39 to the Institute of Medicine, 124 to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
The university was elected to the Association of American Universities in 1974. UCLA is considered one of the country's Public Ivies, meaning that it is a public university thought to provide a quality of education comparable with that of the Ivy League. In 2018, US News & World Report named UCLA the best public university in the United States. UCLA student-athletes compete as the Bruins in the Pac-12 Conference; the Bruins have won 126 national championships, including 116 NCAA team championships, more than any other university except Stanford, who has won 117. UCLA student-athletes and staff won 251 Olympic medals: 126 gold, 65 silver, 60 bronze. UCLA student-athletes competed in every Olympics since 1920 with one exception and won a gold medal in every Olympics the U. S. participated in since 1932. In March 1881, the California State Legislature authorized the creation of a southern branch of the California State Normal School in downtown Los Angeles to train teachers for the growing population of Southern California.
The Los Angeles branch of the California State Normal School opened on August 29, 1882, on what is now the site of the Central Library of the Los Angeles Public Library system. The facility included an elementary school where teachers-in-training could practice their technique with children; that elementary school is related to the present day UCLA Lab School. In 1887, the branch campus became independent and changed its name to Los Angeles State Normal School. In 1914, the school moved to a new campus on Vermont Avenue in East Hollywood. In 1917, UC Regent Edward Augustus Dickson, the only regent representing the Southland at the time, Ernest Carroll Moore, Director of the Normal School, began to lobby the State Legislature to enable the school to become the second University of California campus, after UC Berkeley, they met resistance from UC Berkeley alumni, Northern California members of the state legislature, Benjamin Ide Wheeler, President of the University of California from 1899 to 1919, who were all vigorously opposed to the idea of a southern campus.
However, David Prescott Barrows, the new President of the University of California, did not share Wheeler's objections. On May 23, 1919, the Southern Californians' efforts were rewarded when Governor William D. Stephens signed Assembly Bill 626 into law, which transformed the Los Angeles Normal School into the Southern Branch of the University of California; the same legislation added the College of Letters and Science. The Southern Branch campus opened on September 15 of that year, offering two-year undergraduate programs to 250 Letters and Science students and 1,250 students in the Teachers College, under Moore's continued direction. Under University of California President William Wallace Campbell, enrollment at the Southern Branch expanded so that by the mid-1920s the institution was outgrowing the 25 acre Vermont Avenue location; the Regents searched for a new location and announced their selection of the so-called "Beverly Site"—just west of Beverly Hills—on March 21, 1925 edging out the panoramic hills of the still-empty Palos Verdes Peninsula.
After the athletic teams entered the Pacific Coast conference in 1926, the Southern Branch student council adopted the nickname "Bruins", a name offered by the student council at UC Berkeley. In 1927, the Regents renamed the Southern Branch the University of California at Los Angeles. In the same year, the state broke ground in Westwood on land sold for $1 million, less than one-third its value, by real estate developers Edwin and Harold Janss, for whom the Janss Steps are named; the campus in Westwood opened to students in 1929. The original four buildings were the College Library, Royce Hall, the Physics-Biology Building, the Chemistry Building, arrayed around a quadrangular courtyard on the 400 acre campus; the first undergraduate classes on the new campus were held in 1929 with 5,500 students. After lobbying by alumni, faculty and community leaders, UCLA was permitted to award the master's degree in 1933, the doctorate in 1936, against continued resistance from UC Berkeley.

William Andrews Clark Memorial Library
The William Andrews Clark Memorial Library, one of twelve official libraries at the University of California, Los Angeles, is one of the most comprehensive rare books and manuscripts libraries in the United States, with particular strengths in English literature and history, Oscar Wilde, fine printing. It is located about ten miles from UCLA, in the West Adams district of Los Angeles, two miles west of the University of Southern California, it is administered by UCLA's Center for Seventeenth- and Eighteenth-Century Studies, which offers several prestigious fellowships for graduate and postdoctoral scholars to use the Library's collections. However, any reader with a serious interest in the collection is welcome to study; the heart of the Clark's academic activity is its core programs, a series of interdisciplinary events developed around a common theme. Core programs may range from three or four consecutive workshops to a series spanning a year or more, with a full complement of symposia, graduate seminars, public lectures.
The core programs are organized each year by the current Clark Professor or Professors, who are encouraged to design programs that will lead to publication in the Center/Clark series. The library and its collections were built by William Andrews Clark, Jr. in memoriam of his father, U. S. Senator William Andrews Clark, Sr. who amassed a mining fortune in Montana and Nevada. Clark Jr. a prominent collector and philanthropist had a mansion at the corner of Adams Boulevard and Cimarron, but the structure was demolished. The current library, designed by architect Robert D. Farquhar, was constructed from 1924 to 1926 on the same site. After its completion, Clark Jr. announced his intent to donate the collection, the buildings, the square-block property to the Southern Branch of the University of California. The deed, along with a $1.5 million endowment, was transferred upon his death in 1934. It was UCLA's first major bequest, still one of the most generous in the university's history. In 2009, nuclear physicist Paul Chrzanowski donated his collection of 72 Shakespeare books, published between 1479 and 1731, to the Clark Library.
The early 20th century ushered in a heyday of American book collecting. William Andrews Clark, Jr. along with other moneyed bibliophiles such as J. Paul Getty, Henry E. Huntington and Henry Clay Folger, first began forming his library during this period. Clark collected a broad array of English imprints, his library included the four Shakespeare folios. In time, Clark began to concentrate his collecting on English literature of the 17th and 18th centuries in the Restoration, which defines the strengths of the Clark Library today. Clark developed a large collection of Oscar Wilde books and manuscripts. Clark took an interest in fine printing, represented by complete runs of the books printed by the Kelmscott Press and Doves Press, the two greatest influences on the revival of printing in England at the turn of the 20th century; the library has a substantial collection of American fine presses in the Arts and Crafts Movement Californian printers, as well as the library and papers of printer and sculptor Eric Gill and Los Angeles artist Paul Landacre.
The library continues to collect in this field. As of 2006, the collection contains over 110,000 rare books and 22,000 manuscripts, in addition to an extensive reference collection of modern books and microfilm; the Clark Library is one of the most extensive for British literature and history from the English Civil War through the reign of George II. Many of its collections are only rivaled by the British Library its literary collections, which include literary giants John Dryden, John Milton, Daniel Defoe, Jonathan Swift, Alexander Pope, Henry Fielding, Aphra Behn; the Clark Library has substantial collections of music books and songs and musicology printed before 1750. Among its most valuable collections are the scientific works of Isaac Newton, Robert Boyle, Edmond Halley, John Evelyn, Sir Kenelm Digby; the Library holds theological and philosophical collections of Thomas Cartwright, Protestant theology, Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, David Hume. The Library's most valuable and extensive collection is the work by and relating to Oscar Wilde.
It is considered the most comprehensive collection of its kind in the world. Clark purchased Wilde manuscripts from Wilde's son, Vyvyan Holland, among others. Today, the collection includes photographs, original portraits, caricatures and news cuttings. Most of the important Wilde studies in recent years have drawn upon the Clark's resources; the Clark has taken to collecting books and manuscripts of Wilde's literary circle and the decadent and modernist movements of the 1890s, including the most important editions of William Butler Yeats and many others. Several types of fellowships are offered for graduate and postdoctoral scholars to study at the Clark Library. Among the most prestigious are the Ahmanson-Getty Fellowship, Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship, Clark Dissertation Fellowship, Predoctoral Fe

UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture
The UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture is a professional school at the University of California, Los Angeles. Through the four degree-granting departments, it provides a range of course programs. Additionally, there are eight centers located within the school. In 1919, UCLA's leadership demonstrated an early commitment to offer students opportunities to explore the arts by the establishment of an art gallery and a music department, but in 1939 the College of Applied Arts was founded with the addition of a Department of Art, followed by the College of Fine Arts in 1960, with degrees available in art, dance and theater arts. Following academic restructuring in the late 1980s, the UC Regents formally approved the establishment of two schools: the School of the Arts and the School of Theater and Television. In 1994 architecture and urban design joined the School of the Arts, which became the School of the Arts and Architecture. Brett Steele was appointed dean of the School of the Arts and Architecture in 2017.
