Drexel University School of Law in Philadelphia


No Better Location in the United States

Philadelphia is a lively metropolitan area of over 6 million people and because of its central location, it is convenient for traveling to other major cities. Our program includes overnight trips to both New York and Washington D.C. Both are less than two hours away and easy to access by bus or train.

But don’t forget Philadelphia, or “Philly” as it is often called. It is one of the most historic cities in the U.S. Two centuries ago, it was the birthplace of the U.S. legal system when the Constitution was signed.

It is also a 21st century city. Today Philly is home to many large corporations and multinational law firms, as well as almost 450,000 university students. You will enjoy world famous museums, delicious restaurants and cafes (make sure to taste a Philly cheesesteak!), a busy arts community and the nation’s largest city park. With so many teams in Philly, it’s also a sports lover’s paradise.

Drexel is walking distance from downtown Philadelphia, its cultural center. The city’s excellent public transportation system can get you everywhere else. For all of these reasons, Business Insider named Philadelphia one of the “hottest cities of the future.”
