They are residential at our beautiful building in downtown San Diego, CA, where you can get hands-on experience and get more specialized information about certain aspects of the law.

Students in our LLM in American Legal Studies program enroll for several reasons, such as being eligible to take the California, New York, Texas, Washington D.C., and Georgia state bar exams. Also, to better serve the needs of clients who encounter U.S. law.

Students in our LLM in Practice Skills are students who just want to specialize or hone their skills in a certain facet of the law, and this is a great way to do so.

For those with a JD/LLB (or equivalent) degree and LLM degree, Thomas Jefferson is proud to offer a Doctorate in Judicial Science (JSD) 100% online.

Working with a team of attentive professors, you will research and defend a thesis paper, in the end coming away with an in-depth knowledge of a topic of your chosing. This is a highly competitive program, with transfer credits available from your LLM.
