Fernando Almaraz, ’23, is in the Accelerated Honors Program (AHP) at McGeorge School of Law. Almaraz chose to pursue his legal studies at McGeorge for three reasons:
The AHP program provided Almaraz with a way to finish law school faster than the traditional three-year route.
McGeorge’s location in the state’s capital allows him the opportunity to work for a variety of different organizations that not only have a state impact, but a national impact too.
The professors and sense of community that McGeorge builds. Because McGeorge has smaller class sizes than other institutions, Almaraz has closer and stronger relationships with his professors and classmates.
After graduation, Almaraz would like to work within the agricultural industry because he is from the Central Valley and has a background working at a winery. Last summer, Almaraz was able to extern at the California Farm Bureau Federation and work on a variety of agricultural issues impacting California.
