At Thomas Jefferson School of Law, we are proud of our rich history and tradition of educating active duty service members, reservists, veterans, and their spouses. This year, 11% of our fall entering class was made up of those who have served in the armed forces. When you become a student at TJSL, you are surrounded by a community of friends, colleagues and mentors who understand your military connection, share your special set of experiences, and work tirelessly to help you succeed.  

Whether you are currently on active duty in the San Diego area, are a veteran who recently left active duty or who left service years ago, are a reservist, or are a military spouse or other dependent, one thing is true: by virtue of your military connection, you have had the benefit of life experiences that have shaped your values and goals. You are no stranger to discipline, to hard work, and to sacrifice. These are the reasons so many service members and their spouses have found success at TJSL.

Countless service members and military spouses have chosen TJSL because we are a law school that recognizes the value of the traits that the military has instilled in you, and because we offer the kind of academic program that meets your unique set of needs.
