"The pros of Valpo Law are that the courses teach you to work hard. I learned my first year how to write relevant legal documents, and many law students don't do that until they are a second year. I love Valpo Law, and it has one of the best programs in the area. We have more clinics than any other law school in the Chicagoland area. The cons are that the hard work keeps me from having a social life, which is to be expected. Also, it doesn't have any housing for the law students, but the housing off campus is very reasonable."

"Valparaiso Law is innovative with the new curriculum in how students are taught about the law. The professors and faculty want to see the students excel and work diligently with those who want to succeed."

"Valparaiso University School of Law provides excellent access to information on how to understand the nuisances of the law and how to become an effective lawyer. The best aspect of my school is how open the professors are to answering questions and their open door policy. What I would change about my school is the career planning center. While my professors have helped me tremendously, I have found it difficult to get the questions I have answered by this center. Luckily my school does have such wonderful professors that my questions do get answered."

"Pros: the professors are always willing to help the students succeed in their classes. The Career Counseling Center and Faculty Advisers are great tools too. Cons: Not a very well recognized school."

"I enjoyed the experience while there. This is a good institution for people who enjoy a small university. The biggest con was the quality of network and job security upon graduation."

"I liked the smaller school size, as I was afforded one-on-one time with teachers and lots of internship and career support. There were also many conferences, seminars, and special speakers brought in including Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. It was easy to tailor my classes to my interests, and I felt challenged in all of them. Great teachers, great environment."

"Pros: Legal writing and research program allow students to learn and use their skills to prepare them for life as a lawyer; clinical studies- allow 3L students to gain practical experience as a lawyer where they have their own case load and clients Cons: Lack of diversity; lack of job opportunities; elitist attitude in relation to open scholarships and job opportunities; little guidance for students who are seeking to practice law outside of the region"
