Innovation Scholars Program

Innovation Scholars

Today’s lawyers practice more than just law. They often serve their clients as business consultants, problem solvers and financial strategists. In turn, employers are looking for legal professionals who not only have first-rate analytic skills, but also the real-world experiences necessary to hit the ground running on day one.

To that end, Villanova Law is revolutionizing legal education by infusing vital business coursework and practical experience into every student’s education. Whether you pursue corporate, criminal or public interest practice, Villanova will prepare you to become the kind of lawyer the market demands.

The Innovation Scholars program, which provides full-tuition, three year scholarships to eligible students, was established in 2014 to celebrate the launch of the Center for Law, Entrepreneurship and Innovation and these new curricular innovations.
