“I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you so much for a great class. Pierre and I really enjoyed it and learned so much from you while you taking it. We loved the wine-tasting aspect especially. Now that the class is over and we’re more knowledgeable, we’ll definitely try and attend some of the other events that you offer down in Orange County (and perhaps LA). It was nice meeting you and we wish you continued luck with your business! We’re big fans!”
- Jody Bergougnan – LAW SCHOOL STUDENTS, 11-2011
Deciding to attend LAW school was a crucial first step in the journey toward my new career in the wine business.
I learned so much in just a few weeks and had a great time in the process. It’s serious study but Ian makes it fun too.
And once I received my JWE certification, it gave me the confidence to continue on to the next step and I’m now a Certified Specialist of Wine.
LAW School definitely helped prepare me for my new chapter in wine!
Thank you Ian!

My girlfriend and I attending the class when it was in Orange County. We looked forward to our class each week and consider ourselves graduating from naive to sophisticated when it comes to understanding wine. Ian is a talented instructor.
A really intensive, terrific, 4-week course. Taught me a lot…and taught me that I want to learn a lot more. Hoping for a graduate program .
After becoming a LAW graduate, I decided to get a certificate through one of the more “established” programs which I will refrain from naming. After going through both programs, I can tell you that LAW was hands down a better experience in terms of rigor, openness to real discussion about wine, tasting a wider selection of wines in greater depth, and obtaining a better understanding of the makeup of wine aroma and flavor components. Ian has put together a very high quality program with LAW, which needs play second fiddle to no one.
I had a blast learning about wine and it’s origins and the tasting leassons were invaluable.
LAW school is a great program! Would love to do it again it was so good!
LAW School was an amazing experience. Ian not only taught and coached, but CHALLENGED us to really immerse ourselves into the world of wine. I had been a hobbyist in wine prior to LAW School, but now, with the education and JWE credential behind me, I feel more like a consultant. I continue to gain knowledge in the world of wine by attending other LAW tastings and classes. Cheers!
LAW School was a great way to really learn about wine, taught by an engaging and highly knowledgeable host!
Overwhelming, engrossing, fascinating, illuminating and FUN… who knew that in a few short studious weeks I would actually be able to blind taste wines and have an idea where they might have been made and with what grapes?
I loved this class, it was truly life changing. Although some what I learned has gotten a bit foggy, my point of view, vocabulary and appreciation of wine has forever been expanded and my life has been enriched for it. I have not yet had the opportunity to use my certification professionally, I have added it to my resume’ and will intensify my job search after the semester wraps.
