Northwestern College - Chicago Reviews
Having real practicing lawyers as teachers allows me to gain the most knowledge of the law field. The assignments given are real-world practical and also helps to ensure the the knowledge I gain sticks when I eventually find employment. The class size in the core curriculum classes are small, having at the most 6 students to the 1 teacher. In this type of setting, it is possible for everyone to know each other, which helps with completing assignments and discussions.
I am in my fourth quarter of the paralegal studies program. The teachers are all experienced lawyers, with many years of court experience. They are also there to support me in every way and appreciate that I am open with them if any life issue arise. They help me to fully comprehend all the material with each course. The workload can be daunting sometimes just because of the amount of research that needs to be completed, but I always make it through to the end with high grades.
The advising center has worked with me to make me comfortable with my schedule. If there is any problems, they work with me to correct it fairly quickly. I have yet to attempt to transfer any credits, so I do not know how easy or difficult the process is.
