Comprehensive, Student-Centered Academic Program


Thomas Jefferson School of Law offers an intellectually rich and stimulating academic program, taught by our distinguished and uniquely accessible faculty in a highly supportive atmosphere.


Our student-centered academic program is engaging and interactive, and offers a balanced, comprehensive curriculum that will prepare our graduates for practice in any area of the law.


Rapid technological change and the process of globalization have transformed many areas of the law while also giving rise to entirely new fields. The growth of the Thomas Jefferson faculty has coincided with these trends and we have acquired special expertise in the areas of law that most reflect our changing world; that is, those relating to technological change, globalization and the transformation of our social order.


The result is a modern faculty and a vibrant academic program of exceptional strength, with particular depth in Legal Writing, Intellectual Property, Entertainment Law and International Law.


Our curriculum offers the highest quality classroom instruction, with more than 155 courses, and the personal attention of our world-class faculty as well as a great variety of hands-on learning experiences, such as our student-run clinics and real world externships.


In addition to our Juris Doctor program, we also offer convenient online graduate programs for LL.M., J.S.M. and J.S.D. candidates.
