Bar preparation begins before law school, with the Week One Orientation Program, where we introduce students to the basic skills necessary for successful comprehension of law school subject matter. Students continue to build the foundation of their legal knowledge and skills throughout all their law school classes. During the final year of law school, Thomas Jefferson continues to provide academic counseling, mentoring and support as students prepare to graduate and take the bar exam. For more information on bar-related courses, including Thomas Jefferson’s unique Legal Synthesis class, visit the Bar Preparation page. ASP is vertically aligned to ensure a seamless introduction to bar preparation near the end of students’ law school experience.
Thomas Jefferson also sponsors a special supplementary program delivered on campus for our students during spring and summer sessions, including Legal Principles Course (taken the your first year of law school) and a Legal Foundations (taken after the second year of law school). These courses are geared toward skill-building using bar subjects.
