My nephew got in. He lives in Los Angeles and wants to be a prosecutor. La Verne has an alumni presence in San Bernadino and Riverside courts, he tells me. Plus they have a tuition model that apparently means tuition is half of what it is at peer schools such as Whittier (which closed) and Thomas Jefferson.

He asked me for advice. I personally went to an elite law school, but I knew you proles would know so I wanted to ask. I get the idea of not taking on debt for law school, but La Verne is basically a law school sale. Does that change anything?

I would suggest you look up La Verne on the Internet and see where it takes you... If you still feel the need to ask for affirmation, the answer is 100% No, your nephew should not attend unless he wants to work as a Starbucks barista upon graduation.

No, he wants to be a prosecutor. He tells me they have quite a presence in the desert area east of Los Angeles. I think this is the area that Tom Joad and his family settled in when they came off the road from Oklahoma.

He's the one kid in my ex wife's family who is leading a law abiding and productive life. He would have gone to Stanford or UCLA, but he struggles with standardized tests, math, and science. He did, however, get a strong foundation in Pan Africanism, student activism, and a course they offer in Baltimore where instead of giving kids written tests, they allow them to do a spoken word poem or rap about a topic of their choosing.

Trayvonn would have gone to law school
Freddie too
Whitey can't have that
So he sent the boys in blue.

That man aint no snitch
Though he heard Freddie in the back of the paddy wagon
You know a snitch will get a stitch
And we be on the police like fire from a black dragon

"He would have gone to Stanford or UCLA, but he struggles with standardized tests, math, and science."

In other words he could have gone to Harvard but was too stupid to get in.

I feel you dude. Some kids shouldn't go to undergrad/grad school. And would be better off in a trade school or 2 year program.

La Verne is trash but it doesn't seem like he's bright enough to get in anywhere else.

He's right about LaVerne alumni being well represented in the Inland Empire (several years ago, I was assigned by the firm that employed me to work that area exclusively). Lots of PD's and DDA's in Riverside and San Berdoo counties have degrees from LaVerne. That being said, the school is a well-known toilet.

Two or three years ago, I had a client who had been accused of embezzling money from his employer, some large government agency. The matter was heard in the county crim courthouse in downtown L.A., but b/c the "victim" had been a fed gov. entity, it was being handled by some specially assigned prosecutor. During the course of the representation, I got to know a bit about this guy (We conversed socially a good deal. We had both attended T1's in the Deep South and, consequently, exchanged observations and stories) Early on, he conveyed to me how happy he was to be practicing law again. When I inquired what he had been doing, he revealed that as recently as half a year earlier, he had been on the faculty at LaVerne's law school. He stayed w/ the job three years, but said he was dying to leave after his first semester. Only in the interest of not messing up his resume did he put in 36 months at the campus. Among other complaints, he said when he first saw the quality of writing from his students, he found it hard to believe that many of them had attended four year colleges, let alone graduated from them.

I think it is better now, and at half the price of similarly situated schools, even it's not, the La Verne grad will have half as much debt when he hangs his shingle.
