    Pros

    working while going to school, you know, not bad. It's a good school, and a good place to live.

    Cons

    lots of paperwork. Hard to navigate finding all the forms, if your nice to the admins they help a lot.

    Advice to Management

    With such a diverse crowd of employees and students I don't know what they could do. I would make teaching and management courses mandatory for profs.

  2. Nice university to gain knowledge!

    Pros

    I worked as a graduate research assistant for one of the law professors while attending law school. The work was very interesting - assisting case law research work for a professor who was writing a book on a legal topic. The professor was helpful in providing directions and feedback.

    Cons

    There is none. The work was very interesting, the schedule very flexible and the professor provided timely feedback and a lot of encouragement.

    Advice to Management

    This is a great way to financially assisting law students while providing them interesting work and expanding their experience in the legal profession.
