Against The Tide - MP3 edition

Read by Debbie Hagan

(4.9 stars; 7 reviews)

Corrupt business owners, unscrupulous local politicians, impossible odds and a highly unconventional student body are just a few of the obstacles faced by Lawrence R. Velvel, as he packs up his home of 16 years and heads north to become Dean of a brand new law school in Lowell, Massachusetts. When nothing in Lowell turns out to be what it first appears, Velvel and a handful of law students are forced to choose between giving up on their life long dream, and attempting the impossible.

This page turning story of the little law school that did is a classic David and Goliath tale, pitting the working class taxi drivers, bank tellers and contractors with the dream of creating a better life for themselves, against wealthy business men, former US Senators, even The American Bar Association. It is a tale of the everyman overcoming adversity and achieving the impossible. It is a true story.

Encouraging Story about not giving up

(5 stars)

It is so good to hear a true story about fighting for the rights of the underprivileged and the minorities. About the long breath and the standing together of people who fight the corrupt and rotten system to have a good education to get a good and creative law education to fight the system of the rich and privileged. Let justice reign that does not look at the person.
