It's the second best school in SD after USD. It is generally regarded as a much better school than TJ. But that being said, you'll compete with a lot of USD grads for jobs and generally USD grads will get them. Cal Western seems to do well in the public sector (public defender, DA etc), not so well in the private sector. Cal Western probably does best in SD - once you move out of SD, very few employers will know about Cal Western (but this is the case for most tier 4 schools). Something else you should know (that I found out recently) is that Cal Western is a for-profit law school.Let me know if you have any more questions about Cal Western. I'm a San Diego native & I got into Cal Western but I'm going to another so cal law school.
