Questions about wiring method for lights.
 
I went to my friends house to help him do some lights. I noticed that the house had some of the lights wired with the power goin to the light first then to the switch.

Im use to seeing the power goin to the switch, then to the light. Are you allowed to send power to the light, then to the switch?

I would have thought that would have been illegal.

This is perfectly fine.
The wire from the light to the switch in this case is called a "switch loop".
