November 18, 2010

2006 TJ CLEO

Thomas Jefferson School of Law was one of only two law schools selected to host the six-week Council on Legal Education Opportunity (CLEO) Summer Institute. This is the third year TJ has been selected to host the competitive program!

CLEO was founded as a non-profit project of the American Bar Association (ABA) Fund for Justice and Education to expand opportunities for minority and low-income students to attend law school. This intensive program is designed to demystify the law school experience. Students will take an array of courses taught by our distinguished faculty in the Socratic Method. They will be expected to brief cases and participate in class, as well as complete final exams. More than 8,000 students have participated and successfully matriculated through law school, passed the bar exam and joined the legal profession.

Thomas Jefferson is a proud member of the CLEO Consortium on Diversity in Legal Education and honored to have been selected in assisting underrepresented students thrive in law school!
