Seton Hall University
Seton Hall University was founded in 1856 by Bishop James Roosevelt Bayley and was named for his aunt, Sister Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American-born saint. Seton Hall University established the Law School in 1951. Seton Hall Law is dedicated to excellence in teaching and scholarship in the preparation of students for the practice of law.
The Seton Hall Law Center for Religiously Affiliated Non-Profit Corporations, founded in November 2006, under the direction of Sister Melanie Di Pietro, S.C., J.D., J.C.D., is an independent academic research and resource center dedicated to the study of legal issues having an impact upon the operation and long-term viability of religiously affiliated not-for-profit corporations both nationally and internationally. Through the objective multi-disciplined research on the interfacing of secular law, organizational behavior, public policy, licensure and accrediting requirements and the church law and ethics specific to religiously affiliated corporations, the Center offers a unique service to the religiously affiliated corporation. The research and educational services are provided by faculty from Seton Hall University School of Law and other universities and practitioners who are recognized experts in their fields. Additional information may be found at the Center’s Website.
The Center for Health & Pharmaceutical Law & Policy, founded by Kathleen M. Boozang, J.D., LL.M., former Associate Dean of the Law School, and the current Interim Vice-Provost for Academic Administration and Professor of Law at Seton Hall University, educates lawyers and health care industry professionals regarding the extraordinarily complex set of laws that govern patients, health care providers, manufacturers and suppliers. In addition to its academic certification programs for law students and practitioners, the Center publishes policy papers and convenes scholars and practitioners for conferences on a range of policy and legal issues.
