I was interested in LSB because it was a small school with flexible schedules so I could tend to my family's needs. I am soon to graduate and just completed my externship at a Dermatologist's office where I have accepted a position as a Medical Assistant. I am so happy with what I learned at LSB, and though it was challenging, it was well worth it.Read More »
LSB provides a well-rounded program with diversity in the courses offered. I've been introduced to many areas within the Legal field that I'll encounter when job searching. The Instructors offer excellent expertise and use their own personal industry examples to help students learn. A mock trial in Criminal Law class allowed students to participate in a trial officiated by a Professional Judge. It's been a life changing experience and has opened my eyes to a different world of learning and an understanding of the need for Community legal aid.Read More »
