“I was one of a few students who found the first-year workload at Stanford Law School significantly less challenging than my undergraduate workload. Learning time management on the Block Plan makes going back to the semester program feel easy. I am used to doing my work right when it is fresh in my mind; then I have time to do what I want.
The Block Plan allowed me to work much more efficiently. I find that I often do not have enough work left to do, rather than having too much. In my free time, I enjoy doing the things I found I loved while at CC — hiking mountains and reading fiction.
When I finish law school I will be an environmental lawyer. I hope to come back to Colorado and protect the Rocky Mountain wilderness that I love."
