Working professionals in downtown San Diego wanted to attend law school part-time in the evenings, Thomas Jefferson School of Law (TJSL) provided a solution and it was established in 1969. Originally named Western State University College of Law, this private, not-for-profit institution quickly attracted students desiring to attend law school full-time. By the mid 1990s, the school changed its name to Thomas Jefferson School of Law and gained accreditation by the American Bar Association. TJSL’s campus recently underwent a new phase with its move to an “ultra-modern, high-tech” facility in Downtown San Diego’s East Village in 2011. Thomas Jefferson houses three Centers for Academic Excellence: The Center for Global Legal Studies; The Center for Law, Technology, and Communications; and The Center for Law and Social Justice.
