Meet student Dalton Downing
Great things about the college are the small class size and the low student-to-faculty ratio. I was able to create a personal relationship with a professor who helped me to obtain my externship.

Meet student Aisosa Arhunmwunde
I realized early that laws are dormant until a person enforces & interprets them for people. It was then that I realized I wanted to be the voice of those who needed help with their legal rights.
