University Without Walls!

Humanistic Education through the External  Degree"

 Thomas Jefferson College of Law
of Heed University

Thomas Jefferson College of Law of Heed University is one of the oldest, most experienced and prestigious non-traditional institution of higher education. We have pioneered alternative educational programs for over four decades. It is our purpose to assist students to learn and achieve their career and professional objectives while maintaining employment and family responsibilities.

Thomas Jefferson College of Law provides an opportunity to study law through independent study. We make law study available and possible to highly motivated and qualified individuals who otherwise might not be able to do so.

You may earn a non-bar law degree without classroom attendance and at modest cost. Our programs are efficient and individualized. Your law degree may significantly increase your income and earning capacity, your work performance and your personal prestige. 


It is our philosophy that mature individuals with extensive experience should be permitted the opportunity to study for college degrees without a rigid, formalized structure. The Heed program of "Freedom to Learn" provides this opportunity. Following a "University Without Walls" philosophy, students are permitted a wide range of activities to meet educational and personal goals they establish for themselves with faculty guidance.

Many men and women in the professions, education and business find that the study of law would be most useful in their work; contracts must be prepared and evaluated; lawsuits are an ever- present danger in the business environment; and trusts, estates and wills must be prepared. Indeed, law touches every facet of our lives. An understanding of legal principles is important not only for success in the professions and business, but also for the pursuit of life and happiness in our society.


Thomas Jefferson College of Law offers an independent study educational program that allows qualified individuals to earn a non-bar law degree.

Students are urged to seek opportunities to enhance their studies. Tutoring, interning, clerking, and attending court are some suggestions.
