Call it the law school of hard knocks. Its students are cops and construction workers, paralegals and probation officers, homemakers and schoolteachers. A disenchanted doctor here, a corporate executive there. The 170-student Ventura College of Law is where the frustrated and ambitious go at midlife for a new start, or for a leg up in a career that needs a boost. Typically, they are 37 years old, work full time and are raising families.
