Adjunct Faculty:

WCJC utilizes practicing attorneys as instructors when possible so we can provide students with a “nuts and bolts” approach to legal practice, emphasizing the most current and practical techniques in their respective fields of specialization. Most of these attorneys have taught in the program for several years and are highly praised by students.
