“No single ranking or data point can tell the full story of the value of a law degree,” said Dean Patrick E. Hobbs. “But these numbers in total speak to the strength of a Seton Hall Law education and the competitive advantages our students enjoy from the start of law school and throughout their legal career."

“We play to our strengths," Dean Hobbs continued, “A curriculum that melds theory with practical applications and opportunities for students to gain professional experience throughout law school. Employers appreciate the high skill level they see in a Seton Hall Law graduate from day one, and that puts our students in demand.”
