I am. I would argue that our lack of ability to find first jobs is a function of the snobbish nature of the legal profession (and to that extent has been with the school since the beginning) rather than the quality of the education that I received. I'm one of those people that read cases for fun before going to law school, and still spend some of my leisure time reading about legal matters. I love the law, though my best profs were adjuncts who actually know how to do things in the real world, so I think (because I sought it out) I got a good mix of the practical and the theoretical. I will say however, that GGU is no more "practice-oriented" than any other school, despite its claims to the contrary. It isn't the school's job to find grads a job: the fact that there are too many attorneys' for too few positions, isn't something that is unique to GGU or any school below HYSCCN, really, and isn’t going to change soon because it would interfere with too many vested interests within the legal establishment.
