People choose to study law for many different reasons. Some students require legal education to complement and facilitate an intersection of their chosen career paths with government or policy, for which Empire College School of Law’s Master of Legal Studies program provides an excellent opportunity. Some view themselves as trial attorneys persuading a jury to find in favor of their client. Others believe the legal system is the most effective way to address society’s problems. Regardless of the career path our Empire graduates pursue, the discipline and critical thinking skills learned while studying law will assist them in their future endeavors.

 

Empire College School of Law provides more than an intellectual exploration of the law. We also provide hands-on, meaningful training in practical lawyering through volunteer work in law clinics and clinical education employment. Every year, students have the opportunity to build their reputation with the legal community and gain experience in the state and Federal court systems as law clerks and certified law students. The benefit of this opportunity is twofold: students gain valuable experience in the legal field before graduation and the public receives free services that lessen the burden on taxpayers and alleviate critical needs in the community.

 

Empire College School of Law alumni comprise over 25 percent of the members of the Sonoma County Bar and include 14 judicial officers in California and Arizona. Alumni concentrate their legal practices in a variety of areas including public service law, family law, wills and trusts, business transactional law, real estate, bankruptcy, and more.

Diane Aqui, Esq.

(Class of 2001)
Empire College gave me the opportunity to earn a Juris Doctorate while still working full time in my “first” career as an engineer. The professors are all practicing attorneys and judges and it is clear that they love what they do---guiding, teaching and mentoring a new group of potential lawyers, who one day will be their peers and practice alongside them in the legal community. I think one of my favorite cases since I graduated in 2001 was against a former Empire professor and I walked away with a win!

Andrew Conway, Esq.

(Class of 2014)
I decided to go to law school after interning for the Diversion program for the Sonoma County District Attorney's Office while I was in college. Empire provided me with friends who became colleagues, and Professors who became the Judges I appear in front of today. I have always wanted to work with the law and youth and I now manage a Dependency contract for Mendocino County, which has become my dream career as I get to do the exact job I wanted when I decided to go to law school. I definitely have my dream job thanks to Empire and their exceptional professors.

James V. Sansone, Esq.

(Class of 2006)
I picked Empire College because I had to juggle between family obligations and a fulltime job. Empire was the only option that allowed me to effectively manage my work and family obligations and still pursue a law degree. Thanks to Empire, I was able to pass the bar exam on my first try and begin a new, exciting, and lucrative legal career that I love.
