    I had the great privilege of being a student of Congressman and now Judge James E Rogan Regardless of one s ideology, each student in his course liked Congressman Rogan quite a lot I took his trial advocacy course at Chapman University School of Law What I noticed is that he is authentic and has a great deal of integrity Unlike many professors in a lot of universities, Congressman Rogan was down to earth, wasthan willing to share his thoughts, and was quite insightful I would say t I had the great privilege of being a student of Congressman and now Judge James E Rogan Regardless of one s ideology, each student in his course liked Congressman Rogan quite a lot I took his trial advocacy course at Chapman University School of Law What I noticed is that he is authentic and has a great deal of integrity Unlike many professors in a lot of universities, Congressman Rogan was down to earth, wasthan willing to share his thoughts, and was quite insightful I would say that every person left his course being a far better potential attorney, regardless of what grade they received.I did not read Rough Edges until after I had finished the course I wish I had read it before I took Congressman s Rogan s course, because his life is so fascinating, and also, because of the great deal of integrity that he has held throughout his life Rogan s story is an inherently American story Since America does not have rigid class boundaries that is, people are able to move in between classes due to our dynamic economy , Rogan was able to move from being raised by a welfare mother to going to college and law school on his own Rogan could have chosen to become a victim and believe that the American dream was closed to him Instead, he dreamed of a better life, and despite the hardships that he faced as expressed in detail in the book , he never considered any of them permanent.I also feel that I relate quite strongly to many of Mr Rogan s stories For one thing, I did quite poorly in high school as well I did not enjoy going to class and received failing grades in a great deal of my courses Second chances are, however, available in America I went to a community college, received excellent grades, and went to UCLA I later went on to law school as well Rogan relishes proving his detractors wrong such as the high school principal who says he will find him if he cuts class he never does find Rogan or even look for him and his law school dean who says law school isn t for everyone We have all had to confront individuals who thought we were unable to do something It is quite an exciting experience to read about a man who would not listen to the nay sayers and decided for himself that he would pursue his dreams The fact that he has accomplished all of them shows the remarkable flexibility and dynamic nature of our free market economic system It also shows that Mr Rogan has been impervious to negativism He refused to back down from his dreams and, through his determination, he was able to reach his goals.I would also note that this book is not really about the Clinton impeachment trial or about the specific details about Rogan s four years in Congress Mr Rogan states in the book that he will write another book on this topic, which I look forward to reading about.I will also note that this has to be the best political autobiography that I have read in a long time Most lawyers and, in particular, politicians who are lawyers, do not know how to write for a mainstream audience James Rogan does know how to do so, though In fact, I would say that his writing is superb and is quite captivating.I am truly grateful that I have been able to take a course with such an honorable man I gained a lot of knowledge of the law from both his course and the book Thanks, Judge Rogan
