Some interesting facts about Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law

Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law offers a curriculum and programs built upon the principle that students learn best when hands-on experience is part of their education. Philadelphia, which boasts one of America’s largest legal communities and a host of cultural attractions, has a lot to offer law students and young lawyers. Because Drexel University is located in the thriving University City neighborhood, the School of Law is the perfect place to learn by doing. The Kline School of Law is one of just two law schools in the nation offering co-op education—an approach that employers recognize produces outstanding, practice-ready lawyers. The co-op program is combined with an extensive menu of experiential offerings ranging from live-client clinics to high-quality simulation courses. The curriculum has been designed to ensure that students engage in active learning of the law. This practical experience pays off in different ways.

Our law students master legal principles and the real-world skills needed to apply them. Students gain confidence and savvy as they meet with clients, argue before judges, and engage in the many other tasks that define the legal profession. Along the way, students also launch lasting professional networks with many lawyers who become mentors, advisors, and even future employers. Even within the four walls of the law school, we infuse the traditional law school experience with practical skills. Thus, our curriculum features all the traditional courses tested on the bar exam mixed with innovative new offerings such as Transactional Lawyering, Regulating Patient Safety, E-Commerce Law, and Crime and Community. Professors incorporate experiential education into many courses, allowing students to simulate appellate arguments in Constitutional Law or to play the parts of prosecutors and defenders in Criminal Law.

We have intentionally limited the size of our student body, which allows every student to play an important part in the law school. Students can get involved in myriad existing groups or develop their own.
