Academic Focus Areas
columnsWidener Law offers a variety of programs to help students focus their study of the law on specific legal subjects. Students wishing to pursue careers within particular legal specialties should look to take advantage of all of the opportunities Widener offers to sharpen their knowledge and skills in those areas.

These focus areas can encompass a wide range of learning opportunities from course offerings to internships, clinical experiences, or even extra-curricular activities that engage with a particular legal subject.

Certificate programs allow for formal pursuit of a concentration in certain legal specialties, such as the Environmental Law Certificate available on the Delaware and Harrisburg campuses, the Business Organizations Certificate on the Delaware campus, the Legislation Certificate on the Harrisburg campus, or the Family Health Law & Policy Certificate on the Delaware campus.

For some areas of study, no formal concentration is available, but students are encouraged to take advantage of the available opportunities and programs to guide their studies and extra-curricular activities.
