The Seton Hall University Tuition Reduction Program

Private Legal Education at a Public School Price

Seton Hall University is pleased to announce that it has extended its tuition reduction initiative to eligible first-year students enrolling in the School of Law. The reduction amounts to more than 50% of the regular yearly tuition rate and means that eligible students, regardless of state of origin, may attend Seton Hall Law at the same tuition rate as New Jersey’s public law schools’ in-state rate.

By offering a “private legal education at a public school price,” Seton Hall Law continues its tradition of empowering and enabling high-achieving students to fulfill their potential as leaders at the highest levels of the bench and bar.

Seton Hall Law students reap the benefits of our rich Legal Practice Curriculum, renowned faculty, strong alumni base, and central location in the largest legal market in the United States, Seton Hall Law students graduate practice-ready and with a professional network in place, ready to secure and sustain a competitive edge in our ever-evolving legal marketplace.
