Second, third, and fourth-year students may apply to become members of the Empire Law Review. Successful applicants have an opportunity to research and potentially publish an article analyzing and commenting on current legal issues of significant importance. Law Review publication in California is an accomplishment that could separate you from other candidates for positions. Student authors work under the guidance of an editorial board and faculty advisor, Professor Brad DeMeo.

Volume 5, containing the following five articles, was published in Spring 2010. Copies of Empire College’s School of Law Sonoma County Law Review are available for purchase by calling the Law School office at 707-546-4000.

One of the things that I appreciate about going to Empire College was that the training was so hands-on.

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.

By assisting clients at the Self-Help Access Center, students learn about law, human nature, society and challenges people face on a daily basis.

Empire is perfect for individuals seeking a practical, cost-effective legal education taught by committed practitioners. Empire enabled me to grow and learn through experiences with the Superior Court’s Office and the District Attorney’s office as a student and then launch into a rewarding career serving as General Counsel for American Home Shield >Corporation, The ServiceMaster Franchise Group, Graham Packaging Company, and currently, Evergreen Packaging.

Walking across the graduation stage already employed with a full-time job was very gratifying.

I had a lot of friends go through Empire who had a great experience. If you want a solid IT foundation to get out in the workforce, it’s the place to be.
