Congratulations to Drexel University’s Earl Mack School of Law! The Philadelphia law school is an innovative place. From the Legal Intelligencer:
The Earle Mack School of Law opened in 2006, and has since graduated 404 students in its first three graduating classes. Nearly 93 percent of the first two graduating classes passed the bar exam in at least one state.
The school has a unique co-op model that provides semester-long placements during which students can work part- or full-time at law firms, government agencies, general counsel offices, the courts and public interest organizations.
The law school also participates in three field clinics and operates an in-house appellate litigation clinic. The school's pro bono requirement demands a minimum of 50 hours of service before graduation. The 404 members of the first three graduating classes tallied 48,000 hours of service, averaging more than 115 hours per student.
