“St. Francis opened the opportunity for me to attend law school and prepare for a career in law, not only through technology-enabled “anywhere” learning but also by including practical application in addition to legal theory. The experienced faculty members are engaging and inspiring and have shown sincere interest in helping me and each of my classmates to gain a working knowledge of the law. I am both challenged and fulfilled by the experience!”

“After my diligent search for the ideal law school to attend, I decided on St. Francis Law School for three principle reasons: The professors, who are working professionals and attorneys; the ‘live’ online class environment; and the student body.
I am now in my fourth year with St. Francis Law and it has been a very rewarding experience. The school has exceeded my expectation and given me a great wealth of knowledge and confidence to boot. The professors are knowledgeable and supportive, the class assignments are challenging but relevant and meaningful, and the student body interactions are dynamic and fun.
The learning environment is ideal for a working professional, both in terms of the methods through which the law is taught and its relevant application to the modern day business and technological environments. If you are willing to put in the time and dedication, St. Francis Law School is the ideal vehicle to get to your ultimate goal of becoming an attorney.”

“I have always appreciated the St. Francis focus on the practical, real-world, hands-on, on-the-ground view of the law. I think it’s great that my teachers are practicing attorneys with long-standing specializations in the areas that they teach. We are taught what the law is, and challenged to apply it well in regulatory agency forms, court briefs, mediation position papers, client letters, etc.”

“I am proud to be part of the St. Francis Law School faculty and of what I believe is the future of legal education. I have been teaching undergraduate and graduate law courses online since 2001. I also chaired an academic department and was a professor at the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s School, which had an ABA-accredited LL.M program and annually hosted dozens of continuing legal education courses.
When I found out that an online law school had been established, I knew I wanted to be part of it. Because I have a great deal of traditional, brick and mortar education and have taught law in that environment, I can attest to the effectiveness of online learning and its often superior quality when compared to pedagogical education environments. The St. Francis Law School approach to legal education incorporates adult students’ self-direction and problem-solving skills with their life experiences to produce attorneys who are well-suited and prepared for the practice of law.”
— Noel Woodward, St. Francis School of Law Faculty
“My experience teaching at St Francis Law has been a worthwhile and gratifying experience. St Francis’ powerful online platform encourages critical and analytical thinking in a much more effective way than traditional education methods. The virtual interactive process includes written assignments, quizzes, and group discussion boards that together provide each student with individualized feedback, guidance, and focused instruction. Each weeklong seminar includes live class participation. Virtual classes are composed of small participatory groups with each student being focused, active and engaged. I have found the online platform to be capable of providing a learning experience superior to traditional education.
Probably most responsible for the success of the online learning experience is the quality of the students themselves. This can be attributed to St Francis’ high entrance standards and the fact that most students are already accomplished professionals seeking to advance their careers through accessible legal education.
Bottom line, St Francis provides superior groundbreaking online legal education. I am proud to be part of the team.”
— Willis (Bill) Baughman, St. Francis School of Law Faculty
“My professional occupation requires legal knowledge and St. Francis is my primary resource. The last two years have been so much more than an exposure to law and much more of an entirely new way of thinking and understanding.
The curriculum at St. Francis has provided me with a completely new perspective on rules and regulations, as well as the number of ways to interpret and analyze those. I have been challenged and pushed beyond any of my expectations and have gained so much in return.
The professors at St. Francis are true professionals with extensive experience in their chosen fields and the ability to share that depth of knowledge. I continue to be amazed by the quality of education they provide, along with their commitment to my individual success.
My experience at St. Francis has granted me an appreciation for those in the legal field by providing me with an understanding of the sacrifices and perseverance that is necessary to achieve a solid foundation in law. Nothing about law school is easy, but the rewards of achieving my goals and succeeding on my path are worth the effort.”
