School of Law

The Seton Hall University School of Law offers a full-time program which leads to a J.D. in three years.  A part-time weekend program is also offered, which uses both in-person and distance learning to lead to a J.D. in four years.

Beyond the basic courses required for bar admission and advanced study, the school offers opportunities for experiential learning and clinical education, as well as concentrations in Health Law, Law and Technology, or Compliance.

The Law School’s Graduate Program offers a Master of Legal Studies (M.L.S.) with a concentration in the fields of Health & Hospital Law, Life Sciences Law, Privacy Law & Cyber Security, Intellectual Property Law, and/or Financial Services Compliance. Graduate Certificates are also available in those same fields for 24 weeks of study. Finally, the Graduate Program offers the Master of Laws (LL.M) degree in Health Law, Intellectual Property, and Financial Services Compliance. The M.L.S., LL.M., and Graduate Certificate may be completed entirely online.

The Law School provides a full-time LL.M. in American Law for foreign-educated lawyers seeking to practice law in the United States that delivers an innovative curriculum and provides an unparalleled work-school-life balance. American Law LL.M. students earn their LL.M. degree in Seton Hall Law School's hybrid weekend format. This degree cannot be completed online. 

Students enrolled in approved 3+3 or 3+ programs can use law school credits to satisfy the fourth year of their undergraduate degree.  This allows students to go to law school for a J.D. or M.L.S. after three years of undergraduate study.
