The Best of Both Worlds

Both Camden and Newark offer the student-centered experience and personal attention of a small law school with all the resources, educational opportunities, and reputational advantages of a large, nationally known law school. We invite you to explore more about our locations.

Rutgers Law Prepares Students for Issues Confronting the World

Destination New Jersey

As a legal pacesetter and pioneer, we are giving our students unparalleled experience in the practice of law in contemporary society, thanks to both New Jersey's role at the cutting edge of political, legal, and demographic change, and our longstanding commitment to the study and creation of laws that work in everyday life.

With a faculty of over 100 full-time members teaching more than 1,000 students, Rutgers Law School offers a broader and deeper curriculum as the largest public law school in the Northeast. Our clinics and pro bono programs, long part of the DNA of legal teaching and public service at Rutgers, are the most prominent manifestations of Rutgers Law as a civically engaged institution within our host communities of Camden and Newark, two cities at pivotal moments in urban renewal.

At each location, students now have more opportunities to develop professional skills, access our vastly expanded faculty and alumni network, and live and study in proximity to two major legal and economic hubs, Philadelphia and New York City.

Redefining Legal Education

We make legal education available to a broadly diverse and talented group of students, at a cost that is affordable and fair, in an outstanding academic setting devoted to the highest intellectual standards, and with a mission to change and improve the surrounding community and the broader society.
