Receiving my legal education at Cal Northern School of Law allowed me to obtain a high quality legal education, taught by practicing attorneys, while also having the freedom to work full time. I was provided with a solid foundation for taking and passing the Bar examination, and prospering in a legal career. Being located in Chico, California provides opportunities for numerous extracurricular activities in a beautiful setting, and the thriving Northern California legal community boasts many Cal Northern graduates. Attending Cal Northern was an excellent experience.

Cal Northern School of Law offered me a quality and personal law school education, while remaining affordable and flexible.  The professors are experienced, working legal professionals – all with a passion for the law and teaching.  I worked full time and attended classes in the evenings.  Although it was certainly challenging, the program is very rewarding and the professors have a way of getting their students invested and excited about learning.  Many of my best and most memorable experiences took place within the walls of Cal Northern.  I would strongly encourage anyone interested in law school to check out CNSL.  It was the best decision of my life.

Cal Northern School of Law provided me with a unique and manageable opportunity to earn my law degree while holding down a full time job and raising a family.  We’re very fortunate to have this high quality night law school in Northern California.

Cal Northern offered me an opportunity to obtain a quality legal education while still supporting myself.  Cal Northern’s professors are experts in their fields and were always available to lend a hand when I needed extra help understanding a legal concept.  Further, the open door policy of the Dean and office staff made attending Cal Northern a pleasure.  The curriculum prepared me to pass the Bar Exam on the first try and the support I received while studying for the Bar Exam over the summer went above and beyond the call of duty.

As a law school that offered a night program, Cal Northern was the perfect choice for me. I was completely engaged in the legal theory and academics presented by the instructors. In addition, the professors at Cal Northern also practice in the local area, bringing added practical aspects to the various subjects being taught. Now that I, too, practice in the North state, I enjoy seeing and maintaining professional ties to the same instructors that equipped me with the knowledge to enter into the field.
