Basic Information

The Thomas R. Kline School of Law at Drexel University is one of the newer law schools in the nation, having been founded in 2006. It has a fresh perspective that allows students the opportunity to help shape their own education.

"This law school is the most nimble and responsive to market changes than any other in the country," said Audrey Woods, assistant dean of enrollment management. "Because of our exceptional experiential education program which requires that students participate in either a clinic or a co-op placement, we are uniquely situated to build curriculum that is responsive to the job market."

Drexel is one of only two law schools to offer a co-op program. 

Another factor that makes Drexel unique is that it is a tight-knit community due to the accessibility of faculty, and its small size. With JD enrollment around 400, it is almost half the size of the next-smallest school in the Philadelphia area. 

"A smaller class size means more attention and more connection with the law community," Woods said, pointing out that its career services staff is the same size as other larger schools.
