Abraham Lincoln University Reviews
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The instructors are horrible and what they teach is out of date. The instructor did not care about the students and the books you had to buywere out of date and did not relate to class material.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.
