School of Law
The first law school to be founded by a major research university in the past 30 years, Drexel’s School of Law combines the strengths and diversity of the University’s work in engineering, science, business, and healthcare with challenging legal curriculum and professional opportunities. Taking advantage of its location among a rich legal community in Philadelphia, law students engage with practicing lawyers through cooperative education and pro bono programs as well as a variety of experiential learning opportunities in a vast range of practical settings.
Working in small classes with faculty who are also accomplished law practitioners, students have the opportunity to specialize in one of the following concentrations: business and entrepreneurship law, criminal law, health law, and intellectual property law. Additionally, law students can choose to take advantage of Drexel’s co-op program for one or two semester-long placements in a variety of practice areas to gain real-world experience, build their résumés, and network.
