Message from the Co-Dean

Welcome to Rutgers Law School's Camden location and to our dynamic community of leading scholars, highly qualified students, and distinguished alumni. We are working toward a common vision: to be, and be recognized as, one of the outstanding public law schools in the United States and the preeminent institution training lawyers for flourishing careers in New Jersey, the Philadelphia region, and beyond. Whether you are a prospective student, current student, graduate, practitioner, or guest, we invite you to join us in pursuing this mission and building the new Rutgers Law School.

  • Our Approach to Legal Education is Distinctive




Our faculty is devoted to scholarship and teaching. We have assembled an extraordinary group of scholars whose influence across a wide spectrum of public policy and academic issues is recognized nationally on an almost daily basis. Our instructors embrace an unparalleled commitment to effective and collaborative education and a shared goal of enabling students to succeed.


Our highly motivated and diverse student body from across the country takes passionate and active interest both in creating a vibrant law school community and in connecting to the wider community outside the law school.


We are housed in a world-class law school facility, featuring state-of-the-art classrooms, a fully appointed moot courtroom, and extraordinary spaces for studying and interacting.
