Even though I have always wanted to study the law for the purpose of working in criminal justice reform, I was unfamiliar with the formal process. This program has without a doubt made me feel both prepared and confident when I walk into law school on the first day. Further, the professors were beyond helpful and eager to assist with any and all questions.
