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 Universitymarker. In September 2007, The Wall Street Journal published an article regarding the waning job market for U.S. lawyers, and questioning the integrity of law schools’ employment data and marketing campaigns, mentioning Seton Hall Law School, among others.

Program

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

According to the 2008 edition of the ABA-LSAC Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools, 359 students matriculated to the law school last year. 53% of the first year class entered on a full-time basis. 47% of the first year class entered on a part-time basis.

The school offers several joint degree programs with other faculties of the University. For example, there is a combined J.D./M.A. (or MADIR) program with the University's Whitehead School of Diplomacy. Through the school's alliance with UNA-USA, law students have a unique access to the United Nations. Students also have the opportunity to intern/extern with various U.N. organizations, NGOs, foreign missions and international law firms. Seton Hall Law also offers study abroad opportunities in Egypt, Ireland, Italy and Tanzania.

Students

Many students commute from around the New York metropolitan areamarker; 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 Newarkmarker and a 20 minute ride to Manhattanmarker.

Student Organizations

Throughout the year, the SBA and other student organizations sponsor a variety of practical, social and educational events.

To receive approval as a student organization, the organization must have a written Constitution and Bylaws which ensure full compliance with the university's non-discrimination policy and to ensure procedures, such as election of officers, are done in accordance with the SBA Constitution and Bylaws (for example, that officers are democratically elected by the members).

Membership in all approved student organizations is available to all students without regard to gender, race, nationality, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. Some organizations (example: Phi Alpha Delta, the law fraternity) have national affiliations which require payment of dues, but payment of dues to the national organization is not required to be a member of the student organization.

The SBA provides much of the funding for student organizations, though many of the more active groups engage in separate fundraising to finance their functions and activities. If you have any questions about one of the approved student organizations, contact the group's president. If there is a hyperlink below, it will take you to the organization's Web site. If the organization has a national Web site, it is also indicated with a link.

Finally, the American Bar Association offers student membership to all students at Seton Hall University School of Law because it is an ABA-accredited law school. Please visit the ABA Website to obtain information on student membership in the ABA and its various sections, divisions and departments.
