Academics & Programs
A legal education at Widener Law stands on three pillars—demanding academic programs that bring out the best in our students, a faculty of respected legal scholars and practitioners who are dedicated to teaching, and a focus on experiential learning that ensures our graduates understand how to apply the law as well as how to think about it.

Widener Law’s nationally recognized legal institutes and centers shape policy and theory in a number of legal fields and offer certificate programs. Part think-tank, part boot camp, these institutes give you the opportunity to tailor your legal education to your professional goals. You can further enhance your education by studying abroad or participating in pro bono or other public interest opportunities.

No matter what path your education takes, you can choose from two great campuses—one in Delaware, the other in Harrisburg. Each campus is committed to providing a challenging, practice-based legal education with a wide range of research, externship, networking, and career development resources. And each offers extraordinary opportunities unique to its location.

Widener Law also offers exciting ONLINE Master of Jurisprudence programs for non-lawyers in both Health and Corporate Law. These award-winning graduate programs are accredited by the Compliance Certification Board (CCB) for the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) and the Society for Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) respectively.
