Since 1975, Delaware Law—the state’s only law school—has had a significant impact on the practice of law in Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and well beyond the region.
- Many of our 12,000 alumni have become leaders on the bench and in the bar, including several presidents of the Delaware State Bar Association, the chancellor of the Pennsylvania Bar, and the president of the New Jersey Bar Association. Our Board of Overseers includes two Supreme Court justices, one from Delaware and another from New Jersey.
- We are widely recognized for our practice-based curriculum, nationally respected faculty of legal scholars, and special expertise in corporate and public interest law.
- We have been an influential agent for positive change in the region—through groundbreaking faculty research and scholarship, the legal services offered by our clinics, and the contributions of the talented lawyers we train.
- Throughout their educational experience, our students are encouraged to embrace the ethical values of “the Delaware Way”—marked by high standards of integrity, civility, and professional respect for which Delaware's legal culture is nationally renowned.
