Friday with Franky

05/22/2020 11:00 AM 

You’re invited to our inaugural “Fridays with Franky!”  Franky Gomez is about to begin his third year as a student at California Western School of Law, and as one of our student ambassadors, Franky is a wonderful resource for students considering law school at CWSL. 

Every Friday, admitted students are invited to log onto Franky’s zoom meeting to chat about a variety of topics you might have on your mind as you prepare for law school.  In his first session, Franky will be talking about some of the things he considered when making his own law school choice.  He’ll answer your questions about how many boxes CWSL ticked on his “law school wish list.”  Not only will you get the chance to chat with a current student, but you’ll also have the opportunity to connect with your fellow admitted students for the Fall of 2020.

 Make sure you have an updated version of Zoom downloaded on your computer or phone.
