Dean Carole J. Buckner and the St. Francis School of Law faculty welcome Professor Dennis Tonsing to St. Francis’ distinguished faculty.  Prof. Tonsing is a highly experienced professor, with tremendous experience in academic support, and in-depth experience in the practice of law as well.  He is the author of the book 1000 Days to the Bar, but the Practice of Law Begins Now!

St. Francis uses the 1000 Days text in its 3 week orientation program, taken by all new entering students.  The orientation is designed to prepare students for success in the St. Francis Juris Doctor program by introducing students to the key fundamental skills that correlate to student success in law school.  We look forward to the insights and practical tips for success that Prof. Tonsing will be able to share with our students.
