Widener Law’s two great campuses—one in Wilmington, Delaware, the nation’s “corporate capital,” and the other in Harrisburg, the capital of Pennsylvania—are guided by one mission
and committed to providing a challenging, practice-based legal education. Each offers opportunities unique to its location.
Our Delaware Campus is located in Wilmington, home to many of the nation’s largest corporations, as well as many of leading corporate law firms. In addition to the Institute of Delaware Corporate and Business Law
, which takes advantage of its strategic location, the Delaware Campus also houses our nationally recognized Health Law Institute
. The Institute’s research is shaping the future of health care law, and the certificate program it offers allows you to tailor your education to one of the legal profession’s fastest growing specialties.
The Harrisburg Campus is just minutes from the Capitol Complex, where Pennsylvania legislature, state and federal courts, and governmental agencies are located. It’s also home to Widener’s Law & Government Institute
, founded to support legal service in the government and public interest sector by raising the caliber of preparation lawyers who enter those fields receive. The Harrisburg Campus has a partnership agreement with the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE)
with special programs and scholarships for students and graduates of the 14 PASSHE universities.
There are many benefits to Widener’s two-campus model - two alumni networks, two career development offices, and opportunities to specialize in corporate, health, government environmental, or public interest law - but the most immediately tangible benefit may be convenience. Both campuses are conveniently located near Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C., and New York. Combine those locations with the flexible day and evening classes of our part-time programs, and it’s no surprise we’re the first choice for talented, ambitious students who must balance job and family commitments with the rigors of law school.
