Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2019

Southwestern's J.D. program provides its students comprehensive knowledge of the law and its applications, so that they may be better endowed with the knowledge and opportunity to further develop their civic duties as representatives and become more effective social agents. Southwestern provides their students many opportunities to engage in public interest works, allowing them to contribute to our community by advancing the needs of Los Angeless residents, especially with the onset of political changes that have caused broad-reaching and devastating effects for Angelenos.

Very strong education and professional-oriented approach to law. Teachers have been very knowledgable and engaging, and the school really focuses on creating young lawyers ready for the workforce. The opportunities are there to really excel, you just have to take advantage of them.

It has been a rewarding experience that brings opportunities in a challenging career. The legal profession is a difficult one to enter, particularly right now, but the school has prepared me well for it.

My graduate program is extremely diverse because it allows people of different backgrounds and interests to come together to work towards a common goal. This goal is to be able to help those who may not be able to help themselves. This is shown through the ability to learn about Public Interest Law, Criminal Law, Animal Law, etc. Further, this school provides students with real-world capabilities so that we are not completely baffled after graduation. Classes are mostly taught through textbook learning however they are not focused completely on this. We are able to connect our education to current news and events and there is always a place on campus to discuss your opinion. Further, the school is devoted to helping all students feel comfortable and safe in the learning environment. This provides a stable environment for students to learn and have a social life during their study of the law.

Graduation Year: 2016

I believe the school offers a variety of benefits to its students including competent and accessible professors, a great social life and active student groups, a diverse student population and diversity of thought, however, the cost of education is quite high and the surrounding neighbor is not too safe. With all of that being said, I am happy to be at Southwestern and the Staff and Administration try very much to keep the campus as safe as possible.

Listen the school is good if you dont get into a better school. However, if you do get into a better school unless its a T14 school, ask SW for money and they will gladly give a you scholarship. Better come out less in debt then go to a school couple ranks higher. Also, SW is an up and coming school brand new dean from DC +new facilities.

Southwestern's staff is such an asset to the school and it's students. Those who know SW understand that SW grads are just as, if not more, competent and capable as graduates of more prestigious law schools.
