The Commentary

The Commentary is California Western’s student owned and operated newspaper. It also has the distinction of being under almost no control by the school, which makes it even more awesome. It is funded directly by you, the student, via SBA funds (Thanks, Prez!) and is now produced monthly for your consumption. The paper aims to tackle both current legal issues as well as stories of local importance. We also try to blend a healthy dose of humor, sarcasm and wit into everything we do, so that you’ll actually want to read it. If you’d like to get involved with what we do, or have a great story or story idea to share, please email us at or speak with any of the staff when you see them on campus.
