Students seeking to transfer from another ABA law school must submit:
- A completed TJSL application with the $50 non-refundable application fee
- Register with or reactivate the LSDAS reporting through the LSAC
- An undergraduate and law school transcripts
- A letter of class standing from your current law school
Again, in order to be considered for admission as a transfer student at Thomas Jefferson, you must submit an official copy of your law school transcript, as well as a letter of good standing. Both documents should be obtained from your current law school and submitted directly to our admission office. In order to expedite your review, please work with your current law school to receive the proper documents.
Please note that our Transfer/Credit policy generally allows for the transfer of credits for classes in which a student has received a B- or better. The determination for credit transferability is made by Academics Affairs Committee only after a student is granted admission. The credit transferability determination generally takes 3-4 weeks after a student receives an offer of admission.
We consider students from CBA and ABA accredited law schools. However, with respect to California accredited schools and other non-ABA accredited schools, in no case will a student be permitted to transfer more than one-third of the total credit hours required by TJSL for graduation. We will consider students for transfer after completion of one full semester at another law school.
