Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros are it is a profession that will always be needed however, the large debt makes it nearly impossible to ever stop paying for school and being able to help people when you have over $200,000 worth of debt you need paid off.

Pros: the faculty is amazing, with open doors, and real experience. I always felt I was getting the a top notch legal education. I was always challenged to be better. I had a wonderful experience. Cons: it is expensive and I owe a lot of money, but most private schools are the same and I feel I got what I paid for.

The pros of the CSL program is that they offer a transition period for 1st year students. The Introduction to the Study of Law week long course was very informative and helpful to my transition into law school. Being out of school for some time I was able to get the feel back for school as well as gain confidence with material. The courses I am currently taking are taught by excellent professors who teach the material in an interesting way to keep one engaged and deliver the lessons. Being a first year student I have yet to encounter any cons in the program. The only con about CSL is there is no student housing,

I am very happy to be at CSL. I feel I have learned more about the law here than I would have at an older law school. The program is intense, but it is taught by lawyers who have actually practiced, so I feel I have a great sense of "what it is really like" out there. Because community service and pro bono is so emphasized here, it is really changed how I look at things, and how lucky I am to be able to help others, and that is why I decided to come to law school in the first place. I'm happy to be here, and would do it all over again.

I am really excited about starting and finishing my law degree at Charlotte School of Law. There practice ready approach to the law is a big factor in what drew me to the school. I am hoping within the next couple of years that the school will make me into a practice ready lawyer!

I am very glad that I chose Charlotte. While they may not be the highest ranked school I feel that the focus on having graduates that are able to work in a firm is very important. The school is giving us the real world experience that is more valuable to a law firm than book based schooling.

I believe that CSL is leading the way to sending students out into the real world with experience in the practice of law. Looking at other law schools and their academic program I am happy with my choice. Also you only have to keep a 3.0 to continue your initial scholarship.
