At Villanova Law, students and faculty members learn with and from each other.


Our learning community requires open, intelligent, responsible and mutually respectful interactions and points of view in search of wisdom.

 

Villanova Law distinguishes itself not only by the quality of its legal training, but by its inclusive, supportive and vibrant community.


Inclusion and diversity
 continuously inspire Villanova’s teacher-scholar model that demands intellectual courage within the context of shared values and a commitment to the common good.


Here, you’ll meet students, faculty and staff from differing backgrounds who are approachable and available.
