Living in Palo Alto

Stanford Law School, located in the City of Palo Alto at the heart of Silicon Valley, is 45 minutes from San Francisco, 30 minutes from the beach, and 3 1/2 hours from the snow. More than 100 years old, Palo Alto is home to approximately 61,000 residents. On weekdays, due to daily commuters, the population increases to nearly 140,000. Palo Alto encompasses an area of approximately 26 square miles, of which one-third is open space. Known as the "Birthplace of the Silicon Valley," Palo Alto was also, in 1994, the first U.S. city to have an Internet home page. Palo Alto has over 300 local restaurants and offers access to outdoor hiking and a myriad of cultural activities.

Office of Accessible Education

The Office of Accessible Education (OAE) at Stanford University has a strong commitment to maintaining a diverse and stimulating academic community. Students with disabilities, actively participating in the various aspects of life at Stanford, are an essential part of that diversity.
