Summer Advantage Program

Widener Law Delaware offers students the opportunity to begin law school early. Students who enroll in our Summer Advantage Program can begin law school in June rather than waiting until August.

Students in the Summer Advantage Program will take Criminal Law, a three credit required course. Students who successfully complete Criminal Law during the summer will not need to take it during the school year. Instead, successful full-time students can position themselves to gain practical experience earlier in their law school careers. The Summer Advantage Program also makes it easier for part-time students to graduate in three-and-a-half years or to lighten their course load in one semester of their four years of study.

The program will begin June 1, 2015, and will meet Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings for seven weeks. The final examination is on July 21st. A required orientation session will be held on Monday, June 1, 2015. The orientation session will begin promptly at 6:20 pm. All students must register with the Admissions Office prior to the start of the orientation session. You may register beginning at 10:00 am in the Admissions Office on June 1st. Attending the Summer Advantage Program Orientation Session will eliminate the need to attend some portions of the fall orientation currently scheduled to begin on August 10, 2015. A fall orientation schedule will be provided to all students when it is finalized.

Student who enroll in the Summer Advantage Program will be awarded a $500 grant that will be applied to tuition charges in July. Financial Aid is available for this program.

On-campus housing will be available during the summer.

All admitted students will receive information about the program from the Admissions Office after acceptance
