History

Seton Hall University School of Law was founded in 1951 and was fully accredited by the American Bar Association in that same year. The school is part of Seton Hall University.

Program

The J.D. degree program of 85 credits can be pursued as a day student in 3 years or as a part-time day or evening student in 4 years.

Students

Many students commute from around the New York metropolitan area; however, the Union Building, Renaissance Towers, and 1180 all house Seton Hall Law students. The school's location is very convenient for commuters, as it is 1.5 blocks from Penn Station Newark and a 20 minute ride to Manhattan.

The current 1L class, the class of 2009, has 365 students.
