And we continue to be — our practice-oriented approach includes the nation’s first and only bar-exam alternative program, a faculty of accomplished attorneys who bring extensive practice experience into the classroom, and celebrated legal residency and clinic programs that afford our students extensive real-world experience at major firms and organizations prior to graduation. Oh, and we also happen to have a 4.2:1 student to full-time faculty ratio that fosters mentorship and an engaging community environment.
