2023 Philadelphia Summer Session

Temple Law School will offer a Summer Session (PDF) with in person JD courses, online JD synchronous courses, and online JD asynchronous courses (May 22 through July 7). We will also offer online Graduate Tax Program synchronous courses (May 23 through the end of July). JD students may take one asynchronous course and they may take Graduate Tax Program courses with permission as described in this document. Exams for JD courses will be administered on the evenings of July 10-11. Exams for Graduate Tax Program courses will be administered in the beginning of August. The type and time of those exams will be announced once classes have begun. Students are expected to be available to take exams during this time frame. Also, JD students will be able to take one course offered online in an asynchronous format, which provides students with some flexibility in scheduling the times when they will view the pre-recorded lectures and complete the assignments.


Students may register for a maximum of six (6) credits. Interested students will be able to self-register by the Course Reference Number (CRN) listed on the Law School’s Course Offering webpage and proceed to TUportal to Register for Classes (Drop/Add).

Select 2023 Summer I and search for JUDO courses under SUBJECT. Use the registration chart here to find your specific day/time to register for your course(s). Course that do not have a published CRN (Graduate Tax courses) will be registered administratively upon approval.

Visiting students should submit registration by 3:00 pm on May 8, 2023. Requests should be submitted by emailing this registration form (PDF) as an email attachment. Submit requests to Kelly Butts, Assistant Director of Academic Affairs (kelly.butts@temple.edu). This form is only required for visiting students.
