A Wealth of Academic Expertise
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.
Students in Newark enjoy a lively campus experience in New Jersey’s largest city. Within walking distance of the law school, you will find the Newark Museum, NJ Performing Arts Center, downtown arts district, a professional sports arena, and a wide selection of eclectic restaurants. It’s a short walk to Penn Station, where New York City, and all it offers, is a quick train ride away.
