"Despicable, out of your mouth wasted time. This is a horrible origination that has no credibility. The Dean thinks JD classes are 8 weeks long but if you look online they describe a longer path. The financial aid rep lies and tells you to take out more loans to get in depth."

"ALU has given me an opportunity I wouldn't have gotten anywhere else. I am now a practicing lawyer, something I never thought I'll be. The school program allowed me to keep my job and take care of my kids while studying, the faculty was very supportive."

"I graduated in 2008 and took the California Bar Examination in 2009. I passed the California Bar Examination on the first try. After passing the California Bar Examination, I opened my law practice and still practice today. I was admitted to the United States Supreme Court in 2016. I would not have been able to accomplish any of these achievements without Abraham Lincoln Law School. I enjoyed every minute and studied in the car with the recordings made available from on-line lectures. I also created study groups and I am still in touch with those students, many of whom have passed the California Bar and are in practice now. Since I worked full-time as a litigation paralegal while going to ALU, I could pay my tuition on an ongoing basis and graduated without any debt."

"I have attended Penn State Law many years ago and Concord Law. The latter disappointed me such that I dropped out and lost my 4.0 standing to show my dissatisfaction. ALU is has so many resources that allow you to do well. All you need to do is take advantage of them and have a desire to succeed."

"ALU's JD program is really great. I was able to earn a JD in 4 years and spent $45k altogether. To all of the other cry babies out here, earning a JD degree is hard, and you need to work for it, it's a great school but you need to put the work in order to actually earn a JD. The material is relevant and on point. I was able to go through the full 4 years while working 30 hours a week. Overall I recommend ALU's JD to everyone who wants to keep their job, but is also hard-working enough to study because the bar exam isn't going to be easy no matter where you go."

"What a scam ! I was able to get out of it unscathed. No damage done with my title IV benefits. I was lucky , but If you think Abraham Lincoln School of Law is a solution for your career, think again. All of the 4 star posts are internally generated from staff. "Come closer said the Spider to the Fly !" Btw they basically have no reliable online services. But that doesn't really matter !! Lol"

"Professor Jung was one of the best professors I have ever had. He always made himself available for the students who showed that they were willing to put out the effort to do the work it takes to succeed. He never turned away a student and even though he always had a full schedule he continued to make the time and go above and beyond for his students, myself included. I also feel that his teaching style helped me learn skills that I could carry over to my other courses. His course was incredibly helpful to me and I recommend it to any and everyone. 5 STARS !"

"This is school is an excellent option for those who work full time and are still motivated to get a law degree. The school provides all the necessary resources for success but much of the success also depends on the student's natural intelligence, dedication to putting in the necessary time and the ability to self-learn in a directed environment. This really is the best option for a low-cost, distance learning / night school option to get a law degree and begin the path towards becoming an attorney. Like any law school, it's not easy, but you definitely get out what you put in. The online lectures are easily viewable and can be watched live or recorded and the assignments are not overwhelming although there is quite a bit of reading. If becoming an attorney is your goal and you're unable to commit the time or money to a traditional law school, this is a great option."

"The instructors are horrible and what they teach is out of date. The instructor did not care about the students and the books you had to buywere out of date and did not relate to class material. So sickened I paid to get a degree from this school. Beware that this school is a waste of time and money."

"I am a recent graduate from National Louis University. This school is one of the best universities a student can attend. NLU has an amazing faculty and great online courses. I recommend all prospective students to look at coursework and degrees with NLU. I have enjoyed my four years and I would love to see all future students accomplish their goals at NLU."

"What type of degree: Doctorate Degree What did you study? Law Graduation Year: 2012 Review: 2012: I graduated in 2012 and was able to pass the FYLSX, MPRE, and GBX all within my first attempt because I was able to attend classes online at ALU. I honestly do not think I would have been as successful if I had to go to a campus everyday because my schedule does allow me to. This is a great program with many opportunities for students to grow."

"ALU is a great program with a lot to off. It is not easy, but it is doable for the average working individual. Classes are about twice a week, all lectures are recorded, and Professors are always willing and able to help if there is ever a problem."

"I am proud to be an alumna of ALU. It really is one of the best online programs out there. Technology is easy to use and if there were ever issues I had direct contact with the tech department. Professors were all practicing attorneys, enthusiastic about this program, and great at what they do. Most importantly, the student body was comprised of students from different backgrounds, age groups, and experiences. We all had something to contribute because we are all working adults, as opposed to full time students. If you are interested in getting a law degree, but cannot afford to take out a loan or any time off of work, do consider ALU. They can even put you in contact with current students if you would like a better perspective on it. Best of luck everyone!"

"Abraham Lincoln University School of Law offered me an opportunity to study law to sit for the California Bar Exam. At the time I was at ALU, my job required me to travel early every week, and only ALU's flexible class structure would permit me to work and study law. The education was excellent. My JD was recognized by the University of Strathclyde School of Law (a Royal University in Scotland) permitting me to study and earn a Masters of Law Degree. My JD was also recognized by Northeastern University (Boston) where I am a Doctoral Candidate in the academic Doctor of Law and Policy program."

"I am a first year student. Expected graduation date is 2019. I like this program, because of the method of instruction adopted by the school, namely "one class at a time". If you are someone like me, who works full-time, such method will allow you to have just enough time to complete one course at a time, and to steadily progress towards graduation, without needing to sacrifice one priority for another, namely work for school or vice versa. It is very convenient."
