"The program is designed to fit around people like myself who have full time schedules. Night time, morning, on your MP3 player, archive lectures, it's just a tremendously flexible way to earn your law degree, and something I was incredibly grateful for. I would recommend it anybody who has obligations beyond just school. Most of us that are working adults find it difficult to think about when they can find the time for school. Because of the flexibility of the program, the software, the technology, it's one of those things you can do anywhere, any time. The opportunity that ALU provided for me was a tremendous platform to be able to achieve my dreams--go to law school yet still at the same time have a family, have a job. Without that opportunity, I'm not sure i'd be able to say I'm a practicing lawyer today."
"The convenience of going to ALU is I can still be a dad, I can maintain my job as a law enforcement police officer, and I am still able to find some time to have dinner with my family. Teachers and faculty at ALU are great. ALU really cares about my achievements, my goals, my education. That's why I attended ALU."
"Being a full-time officer with LAPD, a father with three kids at home, the program was the only feasible option for me. Having gone through the four-years program, I sat for the February '04 bar, passed it on my first attempt, I immediately went into practice of law, and now looking backward at the experience with ALU , not only as was my only option, it was the best option for me."
"ALU is not traditional. It adapts to the student rather than requiring the student to adapt to it. After graduation from ALU, I opened my own firm. I work for hundreds of clients now, and frankly it's a heck of a lot of fun being a lawyer."
