Our Mission and Vision
Our Mission:
Widener University School of Law offers students a vibrant and dynamic environment from which to enter the legal profession. We encourage students to be lifelong learners who are actively engaged in the development of the law. Widener Law gives students a strong foundation in the fundamental theories and principles of law, and then provides opportunities for students to concentrate in specialty areas and to hone their legal and writing skills through individualized, hands-on experience in the classroom, in clinics, in externships, and through public service. Widener Law fosters and encourages creative and innovative faculty scholarship that contributes to the improvement of the law. We promote service to the legal community and the public by our faculty, students and staff for the betterment of the communities we serve.

Our Vision:
Widener University School of Law aspires to be a synergy of diverse and highly qualified students interacting with dedicated scholars, teachers, and practitioners in a vibrant, student-centered environment. Through specialized institutes and innovative teaching methods that connect theory, doctrine, and practical skills, Widener Law strives to produce outstanding and reflective lawyers. In law practice, scholarship, and civic engagement, the Widener Law community will advance the state of the art in law, justice, and ethical professionalism in the regional, national, and global communities it serves.
