THE LAW SCHOOL EXPERIENCE

At Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law, we are focused on preparing our students for success in an increasingly competitive legal market.

 

Here, students broaden their knowledge through our innovative learning modulessix in-house clinics and 250+ externships, and gain invaluable career preparation through our mandatory Professional Development program.

 

At Villanova Law, students will find a community that is respectful, supportive and open-minded. We focus not only on preparing them with the academic, professional and practical skills coveted by employers, but also on training them to be the ethical lawyers, advocates and leaders of tomorrow.
