Richard Horrell

JD (Class of 2019)
I am the principal/director of a small school. I love my job and am so much better at it because I have a doctorate in law. I am able to manage my staff better. I am able to understand contracts that I am entering into on behalf of my agency. I am able to negotiate my contracts more efficiently. I am able to understand and implement employment law practices.

(Class of 2011)
Empire has a great reputation. I liked that the professors are practicing attorneys so you actually have instructors talking about what it is to be attorneys vs. other law schools where the professors have just always been professors.

Daniel Lanahan, Esq.

(Class of 2013)
Empire offers students the opportunity to build their reputations within the legal community while still in school. The clinical and internship opportunities available through Empire introduced me to a number of areas of law and helped determine the path I would take after graduation.
