      Widener Law Commonwealth Listed As a Top Law School By U.S. News & World Report

      For the first time, Widener University Commonwealth Law School has been ranked among the top law schools by U.S. News & World Report in the “Best Graduate Schools 2018” guidebook in the law school category.

      The school was ranked 148th on the list compiled in the law school category. The methodology used to determine placement on the list included information from statistical and reputational surveys sent to administrators and professionals. Peer assessment data was also used when tabulating the rankings of the school to be included on the list.

      “Being included as a ranked law school by U.S. News & World Report enforces all of the positive things we have happening at the law school,” said Dean Christian Johnson. “The specialized areas of legal study, the individual support for students and the remarkable faculty who work to prepare our students for the bar exam and legal practice make Widener Law Commonwealth a top-pick for someone looking into a law degree.”

      “I am proud to see that U.S. News & World Report has recognized Widener Law Commonwealth in its ranking of top law schools,” said Widener President Dr. Julie E. Wollman. “This distinction highlights what we know – Widener’s talented faculty and their commitment to student achievement and success make Widener Law Commonwealth a top choice for legal education.”

      Specialized areas of study include the Law and Government Institute, Business Advising Program and the Environmental Law and Sustainability Center. Law students also have the opportunity to earn practical experience in Pennsylvania legal practices at the Central Pennsylvania Civil Law Clinics.

      Brandon Jordan, president of the Student Bar Association, chose Widener Law Commonwealth for the legal learning opportunities and the connections the school provides to local attorneys, judges, and government leaders.

      “While being a student at Widener Commonwealth, you control your own fate. There are so many opportunities that are available to you and as a student all you have to do is go for it,” said Jordon. “The reason I committed to Widener Commonwealth was because of the open door policy from professors. I knew I could get the attention to succeed and I knew that being in the state capital, there would be endless opportunities to grow and succeed.”
