"The University of Denver, Sturm College of Law is gaining momentum in Experiential Advantage, clinics for persons who cannot afford an attorney, and national recognition. We're climbing the US News rank every year in at least one category. Our bar passage rate is up, and will likely continue to stay up. I think the school could use a little renovation on some of its courses -- certain theory courses could be altered towards Experiential Advantage, for instance. The workload is high, but that's the case for anyone going to law school who wants to stand out. The community at large is wonderful, but there is a herd-mentality sometimes. It happens when you practically live in the law building. I'm very glad that I'm attending Sturm College of Law, because I feel I am mostly getting the education that I want."

"The law program at University of Denver is innovative in its use of curriculum. It allows for opportunities to learn through experiential learning opportunities. The faculty is top notch, open with their students, and generally friendly. There is very little cultural diversity in the program, especially for having incoming class sizes that near 300 students. The Career Development Office is not very effective when it comes to assisting with job opportunities outside of the state of Colorado. This is not to paint the CDO in a negative light, but it should be noted that finding work opportunities will rest largely on the part of the student if they hope to find positions outside of Colorado."

"As a private school, the tuition is very expensive, but they are good in that they are pushing experiential learning, thus giving us practical experience that employers are looking for."

"Faculty are great. I love the evening program. It allows me to maintain a job and go to school, with enough flexibility to allow me to handle both well."

"Pros: Compared to other law schools, the peer competition at DU is incredibly healthy; there is a sense of camaraderie and friendly competition without any of the ruthlessness other law schools are known for. The career services center is also very hands-on and the resources available to find internships or jobs are endless. Cons: As with any law school with a curve, students must deal with the bit of competition that comes with fighting to beat the curve with grades. Also, because DU is in the heart of Denver, anyone hoping to practice outside of Colorado might not make as many contacts during law school."

"The only cons are related to financial aid. DU doesn't offer aid based on need except for what the FAFSA estimates a student can have. Otherwise this institution is fantastic. Compassionate professors, an environment of inquiry and integrity, and one that is never dull."
