There are a lot of student organizations here at Thomas Jefferson School of Law. So a lot of those organizations that are available to students here are resources for students to come together with other students of their same class, to exchange ideas, to mentor upcoming students, for example, the 1 L's. So having that knowledge base and being able to meet with students on a social basis and on an academic basis has been a great support for many students here at Thomas Jefferson.
Thomas Jefferson has four honor society or honors organizations. We have Moot Court, ADR, which is alternative dispute resolution, trial team, and law review. The honor societies are great for students because they give you a chance to practice what you're going to do when you become a practicing attorney.
The legal community here in San Diego is very small and what's great is going to networking events because as long as you put yourself out there, you'll be able to feel a part of the legal community.
