Student Resources


Our students have a knack for jumping right in when it comes to hard work.  They have landed impressive internships exploring law and society in non-profit service organizations, the United States government, and the European Parliament, just to name a few. 

Drexel Kline Law School 3+3 Program

Jefferson’s early acceptance partnership with Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law allows students to complete their bachelor’s degree and law degree in only six years. This program allows qualified students to complete their first three years at Jefferson as part of the Law and Society program and then begin their law degree at the Kline School of Law. Upon successful competition of the first year at the Kline School of Law, students receive their bachelor’s degree in Law and Society from Jefferson University. The bottom line is that this program cuts out one year of study and cost; the first year of law school at Kline School of Law also counts as the senior year at Jefferson.
