Thomas Jefferson School of Law (New Building).

Hotspot description.

Our new campus at 701 B Street is in the heart of downtown. It is close to multiple transit options, housing, and just blocks away from the new Central Courthouse, California Court of Appeal, Federal Courthouses, and many law firms. Moving to this new campus allows the Law School to invest more resources in the students and in our academic program. The Law School remains committed to providing a high-quality legal education, and the reduced footprint at the new building will enable Thomas Jefferson School of Law to reallocate funds for increased scholarship opportunities, reposition classes to be smaller with more individualized attention, and help better prepare students for the practice of law.
