Now is an exciting time in the history of legal education at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey–and as one of the nation’s oldest institutions of higher learning (older than the nation itself), Rutgers knows about history. Rutgers Law School offers students, alumni, attorneys, and the public a rich array of services and opportunities from its two well-established locations at Camden and Newark, which adjoin two of the nation’s largest, most dynamic, and international legal markets (New York City and Philadelphia) and span another one (New Jersey). Rutgers is well-recognized for its tradition of academic excellence, opportunity, inclusion, and affordability.
Rutgers Law is committed to scholarly distinction and engagement with the major legal issues and concerns facing our region, country, and world. We also 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. In short, there’s a lot happening here. Just look at what occurred during the 2017-18 academic year.
