Graduate Programs

Thomas Jefferson School of Law offers graduate law programs for foreign and American practicing lawyers enabling them to expand their knowledge and hone their practice skills. The residential program can also enable foreign lawyers to obtain a license to practice in California. The on-line programs are accessible to students anywhere in the world and courses are open to non-lawyers.

Except as provided in rule 4.30 of the Admissions Rules (Legal education in a foreign state or country), completion of a professional law degree program at this law school other than for the Juris Doctor degree does not qualify a student to take the California Bar Examination or satisfy the requirements for admission to practice law in California. It may not qualify a student to take the bar examination or to satisfy requirements for admission to the practice of law in any other jurisdiction. A student intending to seek admission to practice law should contact the admitting authority in the jurisdictions where the student intends to qualify to sit for the bar examination or to be admitted to practice for information regarding their legal education requirements.
