Former Peacemaker (Legal Studies) students speak out:
“I feel it (Peacemaker) prepares students or potential students very well for paralegal studies. The services offered through the program are exceptional and well coordinated. Materials provided are also very useful.”
“I have always been interested in the law. I am really glad to have been a part of Project Peacemaker and I hope the program continues.”
“I enrolled in Project Peacemaker to learn about the law, tribal law. I was tired of elbowing the person next to me to ask whether they (others) could do that.”
