Housed within Newark’s business district, Seton Hall University School of Law is eight miles from Manhattan and benefits from having top law firms, world-class concert halls, and quick train lines close to campus.

Its health, technology, and intellectual property pathway, for example, takes advantage of New Jersey’s unique location as a biotechnology hub, with more than 3,000 biotech companies in the state. 

Seton Hall Law is home to four centers focused on health law, intellectual property law, public interest law, social justice, and public policy. 

Additionally, Seton Hall Dean Kathleen M. Boozang noted how the school’s academic approach leads to career success.

“Seton Hall Law combines coursework and real-world experience so students can both master and apply complex legal theory from the very start of law school,” she said. “Employers clearly recognize that Seton Hall Law students are ready to excel as lawyers from the day they graduate.”

As one of just three law schools in New Jersey, this Roman Catholic institution was ranked 9th in the nation for their employment rate.

Seton Hall also distinguished itself within New York region for practical training, having received an A- from National Jurist in 2019.
