"It's a nice pipeline of highly motivated students."
- Nikki Laubenstein, director of admissions at SU College of Law, told the Democrat and Chronicle.
“Learning from practicing legal professionals was a strength of the legal studies program at Nazareth. I was well prepared for the LSAT and for law school from their advice and from legal courses covering case briefing, rule synthesis, legal writing, and research. The 3+3 program is a significant financial savings. I am really excited about everything I am learning and doing here at Syracuse. Law school has been a huge adjustment but I can feel it pushing me beyond my comfort zones and helping me to reach my full potential.”
— Olivia Fontana, who was a legal studies major at Nazareth, expects to complete her J.D. degree in 2019
