Dale's class was extremely motivating and informative. He was able to convey all of the hurdles a civil rights lawyer has to face at a very human level, which I think is what makes him such an effective advocate.

Dale Galipo's Civil Rights College was the best part of the weekend. Dale does a great job of providing an outline on how to approach civil rights cases from start to finish. He is very easy to follow and uses real life case examples that were great to listen to. I plan on going back this year and can't wait to see Dale in action again.
