Welcome Class of 2021


Hailing from 22 states and Puerto Rico, as well as the United Arab Emirates and Canada, the Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law’s Class of 2021 was welcomed this week into the Villanova community. The Class is an impressive group of students from diverse backgrounds but with one common trait – outstanding academic credentials.

The Class of 2021’s Villanova experience began on August 15, 2018, with a welcome from Dean Mark Alexander. Dean Alexander urged the students to seek challenges and not to be afraid to make tough decisions.

“It is too easy simply to let each day go by, to take on the same cases, and to avoid challenges,” remarked Dean Alexander. “But you are choosing to be a lawyer, a challenging and worthy profession. Being a Villanova lawyer means having the courage to take on challenges, making tough choices and to be a leader in your profession and the community.”

The Villanova Law community excitedly welcomes the new students, commends them for their accomplishments and looks forward to their contributions to our community over the next three years and beyond.
