What were your biggest surprises about the program?

That my schedule was as flexible as I wanted it to be and asynchronous classes weren’t “mandated,” meaning having to be taken at a particular time.

What features of the online platform stood out to you the most?

The most profound feature for me was that you are actually in a classroom where you can see and have discussions with your classmates and professors, not just doing standard postings to blogs.

If you attended an immersion, please share your thoughts on the experience.

Immersion was an amazing experience! It provided me the opportunity to travel to a part of the country that I’ve never been to before, to meet a majority of my professors in person, to see the campus for the first time and meet some of my wonderful classmates/colleagues who have become not only great resources but also great friends.

What were some of your biggest takeaways from the program?

There are so many options that can fit your legal/educational palette, and you can hardly go wrong.

Can you describe what it is like to participate in a law program in an online setting?

To me, it is like physically sitting down in an actual classroom and actually learning. You can’t really fake your way through classes because you’re there with your professors and classmates, not just doing postings.

Anything else you’d like to share about your experience in the program?

This program is phenomenal, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to substantially increase their legal knowledge and experience.
