“Thanks to CWSL for not only offering one of the best and most diverse educations out there, but also offering the spring start option for those people that can't spend three years in law school.”

“I loved that it was a smaller class than the fall intake. My section really bonded and we were able to have some valuable discussions in our classes, which really helped the adjustment to the first year of law school.”

Sara Pasquale ’17 Attorney at Richard Harris Law

“I graduated from undergrad in December and, quite frankly, did not want to wait eight months to begin law school. The spring start option provided a great alternative for me so that I could start law school right away, and not have to worry about finding temporary work.”

“Having worked as a police officer prior to starting law school, I had many challenges that a student coming straight from undergrad would not normally have. Starting in the spring worked out perfectly because it allowed me to connect with other students who were in similar situations and also making career changes.”

“Spring start was the ideal transition from my previous career. Class sizes are much smaller, so I had a chance to develop great relationships with professors. I made a great choice starting in spring and I am very grateful to Cal Western!”

“I graduated from undergrad a semester early and was able to immediately start law school through the spring start option. The pieces fell perfectly together like that!”
