Academic Opportunities

Seton Hall Law School offers a vibrant, energetic academic environment. Located in downtown Newark, New Jersey, approximately 20 minutes from Manhattan, Seton Hall Law is especially well-regarded in the health and life sciences law, intellectual property, cybersecurity, and privacy arenas, and it is in the process of expanding its role in energy, gaming/sports, technology and data analytics.

Seton Hall University is an equal opportunity employer and affirms the values and goals of diversity. The University aspires to be a leader among its peer institutions in responding to the needs and concerns of an increasingly diverse population by striving to (i) overcome historical and divisive biases in our society and (ii) achieve equity and equality. In an effort to enrich our academic environment, the University actively encourages applications from members of all historically underrepresented groups and those invested in our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
