I just wanted to point out a few things regarding the school. First, Dean Arterian (sp) is an absolute joke. She is both unprofessional and an embarrassment to the school.
Other than that, and the cold winters (I am from CA) I got everything I wanted out of the school. I came in with no prior experience of any kind and I came out with a year of family law experience, 1 semester of criminal defense experience and a semester of DA experience. All under a practicing order so I can appear in court and be a primary case handler. Some when the just hit the books route while other went the practical experience route..both can be done quite successfully. I hope this information is helpful. I graduated in May 08.
