Video Testimonials

In 1996, Hyung J. Park, a practicing attorney and CPA, had a vision. He believed that there could be a law school where students could take their entire curriculum online, utilizing the flexibility and the emerging power of the Internet.

To this end, ALU is a learning institution without national borders or travel barriers.
