Empire College School of Law welcomes Christopher Kerosky who has been hired as a Professor of Law. Kerosky specializes in immigration law for the firm of Kerosky & Gallelli with offices in San Francisco and the North Bay.
Previously Kerosky served as trial attorney for the Civil Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. He is a graduate of University of California, Berkeley School of Law (1984) and served as Honorary Consul for the Republic of Poland in San Francisco from 2004 to 2019. Kerosky speaks Polish and Spanish fluently and conversational Russian and French.
The firm of Kerosky & Gallelli has also established a $5,000 annual scholarship, “Kerosky & Gallelli American Dreams Scholarship,” to be awarded to an Empire Law student who is an immigrant or child of an immigrant or immigrants.
One of the advantages of Empire as a night vs. traditional law school is the real-life experience that most students have between college and law school. Being a second-career lawyer, you bring a lot more value to the table and to a prospective employer than you may appreciate.
I wanted to be an attorney because I wanted to make a difference in this world, and I feel that I am doing that. It is very rewarding, and I am blessed to be living my dream. I recommend to everybody considering law school that if you want to do this and have the will to do it, do it.
Empire Law School provided the instruction, guidance, and motivation that I needed to pass the California State Bar Examination on the first try, despite the rigors of managing a full-time career and family commitments in parallel. I would absolutely recommend Empire Law School to anyone looking for relevant and masterful instruction in the subjects of law.
