If your goal in earning a law degree is to use the law as a tool to help clients assert their rights and redress grievances, there is no better place to learn than Widener Law. Learning here begins in the classroom - where you will encounter an inclusive learning environment
that values a diverse range of opinions and experiences - and continues in your clinical and externship experiences
. Your skills will be honed on one of Widener’s two campuses
, which offer more than 60 student-run activities and organizations
Our law reviews and journals develop your legal research, writing, and editing skills, while our Moot Court and Trial Advocacy honor societies sharpen your talents at preparing and arguing cases. Of course, a good lawyer also needs good people skills, which you can perfect in Widener’s service organizations and social clubs.
Because studying the law is a full-time job, we try to minimize the distractions and maximize the convenience so you can get the most out of your legal education. Both the Delaware Campus
and Harrisburg Campus
provide dining and recreation options on or near campus. Delaware also offers on-campus housing, and there is plenty of reasonable off-campus housing in both Delaware and Harrisburg.
