      Law Schools Recognized

      Law Schools Earn Impressive Grades For Environmental Law Programs

      preLaw Spring 2017 Magazine

      The preLaw spring 2017 issue highlights Widener in its list of best environmental law programs.

      Widener Law Commonwealth and Delaware Law School have been recognized by preLaw Magazine for their environmental law programs. There were 46 law schools named to the list.

      Both law schools were named to the magazine’s list of Top Schools for Environmental Law. Widener Law Commonwealth received an A- grade and Delaware Law School earned a B+. The magazine, a publication of National Jurist, is a leading news source about issues in legal education. The grades were based on the breadth of curriculum offerings in environmental law.

      “We are pleased that Delaware Law School's environmental program made the list. It recognizes the incredibly talented faculty in our Environmental Rights Institute and the diversity of educational opportunities that students interested in environmental law have when they attend Delaware Law School,” Kenneth Kristl, professor of law and director of the Environmental Rights Institute, said.

      Widener Law Commonwealth’s campus is home to the Environmental Law and Sustainability Center. The Center helps students engage in environmental law and creates opportunities to engage them in the complex and critical problems that face our society today in the areas of the environment and sustainability.

      “It is an honor to be included at the top of the list by prelaw Magazine for our environmental law program,” John Dernbach, professor of law and director of the Environmental Law and Sustainability Center, said. “Our students and their efforts have made an incredible impact in pushing forward the importance of suitability and environmental law.”
