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.

  • Life in Camden




Within the heart of a major metropolitan area, Rutgers Law's Camden location boasts the best of two vibrant cities: Camden and Philadelphia. The welcoming Rutgers–Camden campus is comfortable (combining green space with urban convenience) and compact (everything’s within a 10-minute walk). Just steps away from a vibrant waterfront district with breathtaking views of Philadelphia, our Camden location puts you within minutes of everything the region offers. It’s all right here: the arts, history, sports, culture, restaurants, and some of the best career-building internships and civic engagement options in the nation.



History of the Camden Location
Camden evolved as a traditional scholarly law school and has long been committed to viewing law and legal scholarship from a global perspective.
