ABA Approved Since 1933


Temple Law School began in 1895 as a small evening program. Today it is one of the finest law schools in the nation, with 1200 students from around the world and programs of study in Philadelphia, Tokyo, Rome and Beijing. The law school is located on the main campus of Temple University, a Pennsylvania state‑related school that is one of the nation's largest centers for graduate and professional education.

 

Temple stands apart from other law schools. We have a unique student‑centered curriculum that integrates both critical thinking and practical legal skills. Rigorous study is complemented by actual practice experience. Students at Temple build lawyering skills both in the classroom and in the readily accessible law firms, courts, civic organizations and financial institutions of center city Philadelphia and the surrounding region. As a result, Temple students graduate ready to perform skillfully in the legal marketplace.

 

Temple Law School is the only two‑time winner (1989 and 2002) of the American College of Trial Lawyers Emil Gumpert Award for excellence in teaching trial advocacy. In 1993, the Law School also won the American Bar Association's E. Smythe Gambrell Award for excellence in the teaching of trial advocacy and professionalism.

 

In 2002, Professors Nancy J. Knauer and Eleanor W. Myers, creators and developers of the Integrated Business Law Program, were awarded the inaugural "Problem Solving in the Law School Curriculum Award" by the CPR Institute for Dispute Resolution.


 

CURRICULUM 

 

At Temple Law School, we believe that a legal education must provide both practical and theoretical knowledge. Temple is a national leader in training lawyers through innovative teaching and award‑winning skills courses like the Integrated Business Law Program and the Integrated Trial Advocacy Program. These programs combine the teaching of traditional law school course‑work with practical skills training in interviewing, negotiating, drafting legal documents, arguing before a jury and cross‑examining a witness. These skills are developed early by the work students perform in the first‑year legal research and writing program. This required year‑long program is staffed by five full‑time professors and is acknowledged to be among the best in the nation. Participation in these courses prepares students for the challenges of the clinical program, in which students represent real clients with real legal problems while earning academic credit.


 

TRIAL ADVOCACY

       

Temple Law School has a national reputation for its prize‑winning trial advocacy programs. Temple provides programs in basic, integrated and advanced trial advocacy and is the only school in the country to offer an LL.M. in Trial Advocacy to full‑time practitioners.

 

Temple's record in law school trial competitions is unmatched. It has won an unparalleled 19 consecutive regional NTC titles, five national championships and 14 invitational tournaments and has scored more mock trial competition points than any other law school. Professor Edward D. Ohlbaum, Director of Trial Advocacy and Clinical Legal Education, was named the top teacher of trial advocacy in the country in 1997. He was the recipient of the prestigious Richard S. Jacobson Award given by the Roscoe Pound Foundation to a full‑time professor of trial advocacy, for teaching ability, and for the overall success of the program. Professor Anthony Becchino won the Jacobson Award in 2003, as well as the Oliphant Award, presented by the National Institute for Trial Advocacy. In 2001, Professor David Sonenshein won the American Bar Association's Francis Rawle Award for outstanding contributions to continuing legal education in skills training.

 

The cornerstone of Temple's litigation curriculum is the Integrated Trial Advocacy Program. This innovative program, combines the teaching of evidence, trial advocacy, and civil procedure in an integrated year‑long course.


 

BUSINESS AND TAX LAW

 

Temple's reputation for superior training in business and tax law is bolstered by an innovative program which combines the teaching of professional responsibility, substantive law courses, and business skills, such as interviewing, negotiating, and drafting. Students use these skills in several clinicals, including the Representing Charitable Organizations Clinical, and the Business Law Clinical. Prospective business lawyers can also pursue the J.D./M.B.A. dual degree program, offered in conjunction with the School of Business and Management, or the J.D./LL.M. in Taxation.


 

INTERNATIONAL LAW

 

For students interested in international law, Temple offers a unique semester abroad program in Tokyo, Japan, as well as semester abroad options in China, Ireland, Israel, Hungary and the Netherlands (see Study Abroad below). These programs capitalize on Temple's strengths in international law ‑ a distinguished international law faculty; a diverse curriculum in international and comparative law; the opportunity for summer study in Rome and Tel Aviv; a Master of Laws (LL.M.) Program for international students holding foreign law degrees; an LL.M. in Transnational Law for lawyers who want to practice in the global market; and active student organizations, such as the Temple International and Comparative Law Journal, the International Law Society and the Jessup International Moot Court Honor Society. Knowing of Temple's success in Japan, the Chinese Ministry of Justice collaborated with the Law School in creating an innovative program for Chinese lawyers, judges and government officials, leading to an LL.M. in American and international law. This program is offered in conjunction with Tsinghua University, which has the leading law faculty in China,  and has welcomed Temple J.D. students to study in Beijing for the fall semester. Temple Law School is also the home of the Institute for International Law and Public Policy, with the purpose of fostering scholarship, dialogue and international legal exchange on issues of international law and public policy.

 


TECHNOLOGY AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW

 

Temple Law School offers a first‑rate course of study in intellectual property and technology law. Through course work, hands‑on activities outside the classroom, and faculty members who are experts in the field, Temple prepares students to help fill the gap between technology and the law. Course offerings include Copyrights; Cyberspace; Intellectual Property Licensing Law; International Intellectual Property; Law, Science and Technology; Patents; and Trademarks. Students can hone their writing skills on the Temple Journal of Science, Technology and Environmental Law, or participate on the Intellectual Property Moot Court Team or the Intellectual Property Law Society. In addition, the Cyberspace Law Institute, housed at Temple Law School, provides both students and practitioners with a forum to define intellectual property on the Internet, protect individual and corporate privacy in cyberspace, and apply laws in a world without borders.


 

PUBLIC INTEREST

 

Public service is a Temple tradition. The Office of Public Interest Programs, housed in the Career Planning Office, promotes pro bono activities in the Law School by matching student volunteers with public service organizations and law firms doing pro bono work. The office also identifies public interest job opportunities and supports students' post‑graduate fellowship applications. Students also provide much‑needed legal services in the Philadelphia area through the clinical program, the Temple Legal Aid Office, located in the law school building, and the Temple Law, Education and Participation Program (LEAP), which offers programs designed to teach children about the law. In 2000, Temple Law School launched the prestigious Rubin‑Presser Public Interest Scholars Program, which provides substantial scholarships to a select group of entering students who demonstrate exceptional ability and a longstanding commitment to public interest. Public interest careers are supported by the Student Public Interest Network, which provides grants for summer internships, and the Barrack Public Interest Fellowships, a loan repayment assistance program for Temple graduates in public interest jobs.


 

FACULTY

 

Our faculty members are an outstanding group of teacher‑scholars. They bring real world practice experience to the law school classroom. Educated at the nation's top law schools, they have worked in law firms, judicial clerkships, government service and public interest agencies. They are committed to scholarship and public service, but their first commitment is to teaching.


 

STUDENT BODY

 

Temple Law students are not easy to describe. They arrive at the law school each fall from across the country and around the world. They bring with them a rich array of academic and professional experience. Temple Law students contribute an energy and diversity of opinion to the classroom experience that animates the learning atmosphere and defines the Temple community.

 

Temple received over 4700 applications for the 300 seats in the 2006 entering class. The 2006 entering class came to Temple from 131 different undergraduate schools and 40 states and foreign countries. Women comprised 42 percent of the entering class, and 22 percent were minority students.


       

STUDENT ACTIVITIES

 

Students are an integral part of policy‑making and governance at the Law School. The Student Bar Association is the umbrella organization that oversees over 30 student groups. Student publications include the Temple Law Review, the Temple Journal of Science, Technology and Environmental Law, the Temple International and Comparative Law Journal, and the Temple Political and Civil Rights Law Review. Students who excel in trial advocacy may participate in the National Trial Team or the Moot Court Honor Society. Other student organizations include the Women's Law Caucus, the Black Law Students Association, the Asian/Pacific Islander American Law Student Association, the Latino Law Students Association, Outlaw, the Student Public Interest Network, the International Law Society and the Intellectual Property Law Society.


 

PLACEMENT

 

The exceptional quality of the Law School is reflected in the achievement of its graduates. The 2006 graduating class had a placement rate of 94 percent. Of those employed, 49 percent entered private law firm practice, 12 percent began their legal careers as judicial clerks, 11 percent launched careers in government, 7 percent accepted positions with public interest organizations, 19 percent went into business and industry, and the remainder pursued other careers. As a result of their diverse geographic origins, talents and interests, Temple students seek positions throughout the country. The ability of Temple alumni/ae to make a difference is evidenced by their achievements in every branch of local and federal government, the judiciary and private and public practice.


 

STUDY ABROAD

 

Recognizing that an international experience is best gained by actually living, learning and working abroad, the Law School has established a semester‑abroad program in Tokyo, Japan. This is the first and only ABA‑accredited semester abroad program offered by an American law school in Asia. The curriculum, taught by U.S. and Japanese law professors to U.S. and Japanese students, includes a mix of standard law courses and specialty courses focusing on comparative, Japanese, and Asian legal studies. Internships in Japanese law firms and corporations are also available.

 

In conjunction with Tsinghua University, which has the leading law faculty in China, Temple recently added another unique program for American J.D. students to study in Beijing for the fall semester. In addition, students have a semester study abroad option in Cork, Ireland, Tel Aviv, Israel, Budapest, Hungary and Utrecht, the Netherlands.

 

Every summer for over 25 years, students from law schools all over the United States have gathered at Temple Law School's summer program in Rome, Italy. Students study comparative and international law in classes co‑taught by Temple faculty and by professors, judges, and prominent lawyers from the host country. Visits to the courts and other legal institutions of the host country enrich classroom studies.


 

LL.M. PROGRAMS

 

Temple Law School currently offers a Master of Laws (LL.M.) through five specialized programs: Taxation, Trial Advocacy, Teaching Fellowships, Transnational Law, and the program for graduates of international law schools.

 

Founded in 1973, Temple's Graduate Tax program has a well‑deserved reputation for excellence. Courses are taught by Temple's distinguished full‑time faculty and prominent tax practitioners. Students can attend on a full or part‑time basis. J.D./LL.M. students can obtain up to half the credits toward the LL.M. while they are J.D. students.

 

The LL.M. in Trial Advocacy embodies Temple's award‑winning concept of advocacy training in a unique, one‑year program designed for the practicing lawyer. Nationally prominent trial lawyers, law professors and communications experts guide students through the intricacies of complex litigation using lectures and critiques of student performances.

 

Each year Temple admits up to four lawyers with an interest in teaching law into its prestigious Graduate Teaching Fellowship program. Fellows spend two years developing their teaching and scholarship in preparation for a career in teaching law.

 

Twenty‑five years ago, Temple was among the first law schools to recognize the need for globally‑trained lawyers when it created its LL.M. degree program for lawyers holding a first degree in law from a recognized law faculty outside the U.S. Today, Temple's program provides an excellent traditional legal education as well as opportunities not available at other law schools, such as the option to study at the Philadelphia or Tokyo campus and to participate in Temple's award‑winning trial advocacy program.

 

In 1997 the faculty instituted an LL.M. in Transnational Law for lawyers who want to practice in the global market. This innovative program, which can be completed in Philadelphia and/or Tokyo, gives students the cultural understanding and legal skills necessary to practice internationally.
