Now is an exciting time in the history of legal education at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, one of the nation's oldest institutions of higher learning (older, indeed, than the nation itself). With the American Bar Association’s recent approval, the newly merged Rutgers Law School offers students, alumni, and attorneys the services and opportunities available from two well-established and well-known law schools at Camden and Newark, while combining those two distinct schools into one fully integrated entity that adjoins two of the nation's largest legal markets (New York City and Philadelphia) and spans another one (New Jersey).

Rutgers Law is equally ambitious in its commitment to scholarly distinction and engagement with the major legal issues and concerns facing our region, country, and world. 

We have a steadfast commitment to public service, carried out through a myriad of programs and projects that provide legal services to individuals in need, both locally and globally.

As one of the largest law schools in the nation, Rutgers Law School delivers a comprehensive enhanced curriculum, a massive alumni association, and a heightened national profile befitting the law school of a major public research university. Just look at what occurred during the 2016-17 academic year.
