Experience Thomas Jefferson School of Law

Students at Thomas Jefferson School of Law come from all walks of life—from all over the country and the world. Many students choose TJSL because of the school’s location in the heart of downtown San Diego, which supports a network of student activities and job opportunities.

San Diego, known as “America’s Finest City,” offers its own community, with great places for play and for study. Envision a study group on the beach, on the lawn at a downtown park, or in one of the city’s many coffee shops or restaurants.

“I chose to attend TJSL for its excellent location and because I wanted the experience of a smaller campus.  TJSL has provided me unique opportunities to establish personal relationships with professors who have helped me gain insight into my future legal career. TJSL’s special focus on bar passage through its Academic Success and Bar Preparation department has given me outstanding study skills, furthering my confidence that with the right amount of hard work, I will be a practicing attorney only months after receiving my J.D.”

“I am extremely impressed with the quality of the LL.M. program at TJSL. The faculty and staff are truly interested in the success of their students and are very approachable. The Professors are not only highly knowledgeable in their respective legal field, but also have excellent pedagogic skills, which makes a huge difference on the learning curve. Being able to study in an astonishing facility, with state-of-the-art classrooms, amongst American students, at the amazing city of San Diego makes this experience unique and very enjoyable. Highly recommendable to any lawyer looking to understand and deepen their knowledge of the interesting American Legal System.”

“I always knew I wanted to be a lawyer; I strongly believed that it was one of the best ways to be of service to others. I was a Girl Scout in elementary school and that experience sparked my love for my community, peers, friends, and the world. This evolved into my going to bi-monthly city council meetings when I was in high school to volunteering in the student advisory board in Brea, CA alongside a few of my peers. Now, as a student at TJSL, I’m earning the skills necessary to better serve my community.”
