For more than a century, Temple University Beasley School of Law has quietly accepted college students and then graduated them as brilliant and hungry lawyers. It incorporates both Socratic and Problem methods for a better rounded and complete educational experience. Each year, TU accepts around 250 incoming freshmen and around 60 for its evening course offerings. There's also a diverse student body; women comprise approximately 44% of each class and the majority of states are represented.
As with all colleges, it's the faculty who truly define the value of the education. Some of the nation's brightest legal minds earned their degrees here. Some return to teach, such as Hosea Harvey, who spent five years in New York City. His experience gained, including time spent as Associate General Counsel at Planned Parenthood, as well as his experience in mergers and acquisitions, affords those who are fortunate enough to witness and then apply his instruction a rare opportunity.
Beasley also offers several graduate programs, including Taxation, Trial Advocacy and Foreign Lawyers. Other programs include the Freedman Fellow Program, Rule of Law Program in China, Semesters Abroad in Tokyo, Japan or Rome, Italy and several others. Further, the school attracts guest speakers from around the nation.
