The School of Law

The only private law school in New Jersey, Seton Hall Law School was founded in 1951. In 1992, the Law School moved to a $36 million, state-of-the-art facility in the heart of the Newark Renaissance area. The Law School has been ranked highly in a number of nationally recognized surveys, including that of U.S. News & World Report. That particular survey consistently ranks Seton Hall's Health Law & Policy Program among the nation's top 10 health law programs, and on March 31, 2000, recognized the program as Number 3 in the nation. Seton Hall Law School offers both day and evening programs leading to the Juris Doctor (J.D.), Juris Doctor/Doctor of Medicine (J.D., M.D.), Master of Laws (LL.M.) and Master of Jurisprudence (M.S.J.) degrees.

The University

Seton Hall University was founded in 1856 by Bishop James Roosevelt Bayley, the first bishop of Newark, who named it after his aunt, Mother Elizabeth Ann Seton. Mother Seton was a pioneer in Catholic education and the first American-born saint. Seton Hall is the largest and oldest diocesan university in the United States. Today, the University is made up of nine schools and colleges: The School of Law, the College of Arts and Sciences, the W. Paul Stillman School of Business, the College of Education and Human Services, the College of Nursing, the Immaculate Conception School of Theology, the School of Graduate Medical Education, the School of Diplomacy and International Relations, and University College. The School of Diplomacy and International Relations, is the newest school of Seton Hall University, having been founded in 1997. It offers several degree programs, including a Juris Doctor/Master of Arts in Diplomacy and International Relations (J.D./MADIR) in conjunction with the Law School. The formation of the School of Diplomacy was an outgrowth of Seton Hall's unique alliance with UNA-USA, the nation's leading center for research and information on the work of the United Nations. One of six private universities in New Jersey and the only Catholic university in the state, Seton Hall currently enrolls nearly 10,000 students.
