Message from Co-Dean Michael Cahill

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.
