My CalSouthern Experience

I am more than satisfied with my experience at the California Southern University School of Law. The curriculum was every bit as rigorous as that found at prestigious “brick and mortar” law schools—usually using the same casebooks—and the faculty was experienced and knowledgeable. The deans were always available to provide any assistance I needed throughout the program.
