Drexel Law Hosts the Bar Association

August 22, 2008

The Drexel University Earle Mack School of Law is heading for full-fledged entry into the Philadelphia legal community.  First opening in 2006 (it is one of the three newest law schools in the nation), Drexel now has its first class of third year law students (meaning it is a complete law school).  Earlier this year, it also received provisional accreditation by the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar Association.

Just as importantly, Drexel is doing what it can to make the necessary connections into the existing Philadelphia bar.  The university is renowned for its co-operative education program, in which it places students in the “real world” for internships, and the law school has followed suit.  Earlier this week, the law school also hosted the YLD Law School Outreach program.  Representatives of the senior bar, judiciary, YLD and affinity bar associations were present to introduce themselves to the students. 

From those students I met at the well-attended event, it certainly appears that they are aware of the opportunities they have and want to take advantage of them (or maybe it was just the open bar).  They want to become involved, meet bar leaders and seek advice on job hunting.  All in all, Drexel Law is on the right track and should be a welcome addition to the Philadelphia legal world.
