The average student takes nine units for three required semesters: fall, spring, and summer. Students must take all three semesters to qualify for the exam. According to Assistant Dean and Admissions Director Linda Paavola, the school has had more than 1,600 graduates.

Testimonial of the Week

LawCrossing has the most listings of any job board I have used. It's actually a great site. The website had a lot of detail. It’s nice that you don't have to go through a recruiter if you don't want to. You can actually contact the law firm directly for the positions listed. LawCrossing had a ton of great features.
