Why Stetson Law?
“Although it is important to learn statutes, rules and case law, nothing compares with learning how to apply those laws in a real world case scenario. I found the opportunity to attend classes virtually with experienced classmates, and to learn from experienced judges and professors, to be invaluable. I still often think back to some of the practical applications that were conveyed in our discussions when I am faced with similar scenarios with my own clients.”
