Where theory and practice converge.
At first glance, the Earle Mack School of Law curriculum offers the same rich foundation as many other law schools. It’s our groundbreaking integration of theory and practice that causes all the double-takes.
Starting with the first-year curriculum, you’ll be immersed in critical analysis, oral advocacy, legal writing and advanced research. Simultaneously, you’ll gain critical understanding of the core subjects of American law. As the curriculum advances, so does the depth of knowledge and the integration with legal practice. Upper-level courses cover topics as diverse as e-commerce law, bioethics and international human rights advocacy.
Our faculty tends to get creative in the classroom. So you might write and deliver an argument in your Constitutional Law class. You could meet a public defender who has represented mentally ill clients in Mental Health Law class. And your deal-making skills may be observed and critiqued by a veteran attorney in your Transactional Lawyering class.
Co-op placements, clinics and pro bono service give you firsthand experience with actual legal practice.
The Earle Mack School of Law also collaborates with other top programs at Drexel University. For students who seek an-depth immersion into a single area of practice, we offer several concentrations and joint degrees for an academic experience with personalized options.
Starting in 2014, the Fast Forward 2-year J.D. program will allow you to earn your law degree in two years without sacrificing Drexel University’s signature approach to hands-on education.
