  • Philadelphia - Temple University Beasley School of Law
    1719 North Broad St., Philadelphia 19122, Phone: (215) 204-7861

    At Temple, we believe that some things just have to be learned by doing. You can't learn to ride a bicycle by reading a manual, you can't learn how to be a lawyer by watching even the best of lawyers, and you can't improve if mistakes are only imagined. At Temple, students don't just read, watch, or imagine. They do that and more-they do the work of attorneys. It sounds simple but it works. Temple University's Beasley School of Law offers a different kind of law school experience: a Real World, Real Law experience that incorporates academic and practical applications of legal study into rigorous classroom experiences.

    Unlike most law schools that remain isolated from their universities, Penn Law has followed the opposite path, nurturing relationships with as fine an array of law-related professional schools as you will find in the country. Students can easily enhance their first-rate legal education through study in many associated disciplines, either through matriculation in a joint degree program or by taking up to four courses in other departments.

  • Pittsburgh - University of Pittsburgh School of Law
    3900 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh 15260, Phone: (412) 648-1400

    The University of Pittsburgh School of Law is a diverse community of learning whose essential mission is to help lawyers and legal institutions to meet the demands of a rapidly changing legal and professional environment. We perform this mission through three critical functions: We prepare a diverse and talented pool of students to meet the challenges of demanding legal careers whether as advocates, counselors, planners, or policy makers and to meet the leadership responsibilities lawyers are called upon to perform in their personal and professional lives. Our central focus in this effort is the preparation of students for the first professional degree in law. We are a center of legal scholarship, whose members work to enlarge society's understanding of law and its underlying policies, legal institutions, and legal processes. We provide expertise, support and service to governmental units at all levels, to local and national organizations engaged in law reform and policy analysis, to the legal profession, and to the people of Western Pennsylvania, both through the work of our graduates and through efforts to foster improvements in all aspects of the justice system. In serving our students, we are committed to an active and inclusive spirit of community and to the effective, efficient and congenial provision of service. We seek to model a diverse community characterized by fairness, professionalism, and respect for the dignity and contributions of all persons. We aspire, with regard to our teaching, research, and public service, to conduct all of our programs in a manner consistent with the highest standards of professionalism, and at a nationally prominent level of quality that adds luster to the legal and business communities of Pittsburgh; that makes us relevant to the key needs of this region's private, public, and nonprofit sectors; and that distinguishes us as one of the finest public urban law schools in the United States.

  • Villanova - Villanova University School of Law
    299 North Spring Mill Road, Villanova 19085, Phone: (610) 519-7000

    Villanova is rooted in the Catholic tradition that emphasizes the unique value of individual human lives and our endowment with free will. It inspires us to provide a professional education emphasizing honesty, integrity, and responsibility. This aspect of the tradition is embodied in St. Thomas More, whose figure graces the main entrance in Garey Hall, and whose principled resistance to corruption has been an exemplar of integrity for centuries. Respect for human dignity is also embodied in our commitment to service. Students are taught that pro bono legal service to the poor should be part of their careers, both as students and as lawyers. This aspect of our tradition is embodied in St. Ives, who taught that a lawyer's vocation must include a sense of responsibility for the poor. His figure stands next to that of St. Thomas More at our entrance.
