Despite spending fewer hours within the halls of the building, Weekend Students have made the most of their opportunity and become a thriving part of the Law School community. Weekenders volunteered time at the local soup kitchen and gave back to the Newark community; they worked on behalf of real clients through the Seton Hall Law’s Center for Social Justice and wrote for Incarcerated Persons Workforce Re-Entry; and they visited detainees at the border to provide legal services. Many students were instrumental in starting and reviving new committees and student organizations throughout the law school, with some assuming prominent leadership positions on the Law Review and in the Student Bar Association, and achieving high placements in in Mock Trial and Moot Court competitions.
"We are very proud of this program. It is rigorous and challenging, but it leaves our students as prepared as anyone who went to law school full-time. We simply can’t wait to see the heights that our Weekend graduates will reach."
JOHN KIP CORNWELL, Interim Dean and Professor of Law
