What Students Are Saying

3.67 Average Rating
I admire the professors that I've met because they have ignored the political boundaries that other law schools live by and get down to what the law school and the community need most. The students need practice and the community needs activity thus the clinical program was implemented in the JD program. I cannot wait to start studying here.
