Bronx School of Law & Finance Reviews

The security guards pick and choose who to search thoroughly and let others go without a problem. Some students have got into the school with illegal things yet the security guards will hold students until they are late for class, making them empty each and every compartment of their bag because they mistook a metal pen for an electronic cigarette. If an injury on the school grounds were to take place the school staff are more concerned about themselves than the condition of the student. The fire alarms are pulled frequently and yet no one is caught on camera. The fire extinguisher exploded one time.They do not respond immediately to reported fights and allegedly their was an intruder in the building one time.

The students are not really committed. The instructors fail to motivate the students. Since the clubs heavily rely on teams and the majority are unwilling to do their part, they are not very competitive. Moot Court and Mock Trial are fun to experience. Going up against students from other schools and meeting real judges and lawyers are amazing opportunities but the team must be functional. Each year, they lack the confidence or just slack off. It is fun and life-altering but when it comes to the ambitious and dedicated, my advice is, try outside of school activities like the DEA program and College Now.
There is an amazing amount of opportunities available for students. Such as internships, sport activities, and after school programs.
