Take a Tour of the New TJSL Building
Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s iconic East Village building has already become an important part of its thriving downtown San Diego neighborhood.
The campus is getting rave reviews from students, faculty and the entire community, especially for its student friendly design.
The eight-story building, with its iconic chevron roof, is sure to be a landmark in San Diego’s vibrant, exciting East Village where it sits just a few blocks from Petco Park.
The 305,000 square foot (including parking, outdoor decks and roof areas) facility is ultra-modern, technologically cutting-edge and unique among American law schools. It features “smart classrooms”, outdoor terraces for the students, a legal clinic and will soon feature a café.
The campus is situated within walking distance of San Diego’s thriving Gaslamp Quarter as well as close to all of the downtown courthouses and law firms. It also stands a block from the site of San Diego’s new Central Library that is now under construction.
The design and architecture of the new TJSL are meant to be welcoming and friendly to everyone who sets foot in the building – with touches of whimsy as counterpoint to the serious business of training lawyers.
Our new campus is a fitting home for a law school that is innovative, student-centered and blazing trails into emerging areas of law globally.
