The Seton Hall University School of Law (also known as Seton Hall Law) is part of Seton Hall University, and is located in downtown Newark, New Jersey. Seton Hall Law School is the only private law school in New Jersey, and is the top-ranked of the three law schools in the state. Founded in 1951, it is accredited by the American Bar Association (ABA), and is also a member of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS).
On February 5, 1951, Seton Hall University School of Law opened on the old John Marshall site, 40 Journal Square, Jersey City with an entering class of 72 students, 16 full-time and 56 part-time faculty members. The school was also fully accredited by the American Bar Association in that same year.
The J.D. degree program of 88 credits can be pursued as a day student in three years or as a part-time day or evening student in 3.5 (with 2 summers) or 4 years.
Seton Hall Law offers a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Health Law, Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Intellectual Property Law, and Master of Science in Jurisprudence (M.S.J.) degrees.
The school also offers several joint degree programs with other faculties of the University. For example, there is a combined J.D./M.A. (or MADIR) program with the University's Whitehead School of Diplomacy. Through the school's alliance with UNA-USA, law students have a unique access to the United Nations.
According to the 2008 edition of the ABA-LSAC Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools, 359 students matriculated to the law school last year. 53% of the first year class entered on a full-time basis. 47% of the first year class entered on a part-time basis.
Students have the opportunity to intern/extern with various U.N. organizations, NGOs, foreign missions and international law firms. Seton Hall Law also offers study abroad opportunities in Egypt, Ireland, Italy, Zanzibar and Tanzania.
Center for Policy and Research

For 2011, the U.S. News and World Report ranked the school 61st in the nation. The school's health law program is consistently ranked among the top ten health law programs in the country and is currently ranked 6th by US News & World Report.
In 2011, The National Law Journal ranked Seton Hall School of Law 33rd in its annual survey of the law schools that NLJ 250 law firms relied on the most to fill their first-year associate classes.
Seton Hall School of Law is currently the only law school in NJ with an active newspaper, The Cross Examiner. The school produces four journals: Circuit Review, Sports & Entertainment Law Journal, Legislative Journal, and the Seton Hall Law Review.

At One Newark Center, the Law School and several academic centers of the University are housed in a modern 22-story skyscraper building in the business and high-tech heart of Downtown Newark completed in 1991. The Newark Campus building provides 210,000 square feet (20,000 m2) and an additional 65,000 square feet (6,000 m2) of library, named for Peter W. Rodino, to the University. It is at the corner of Raymond Boulevard and McCarter Highway, two blocks west of Penn Station Newark, where numerous connections can be made to New Jersey Transit and PATH (an approximate 20 minute ride to Manhattan). While many students commute from around the New York metropolitan area, other students are housed at Eleven 80, the Union Building, and Renaissance Towers. One Newark Center is one of the tallest buildings in the city and also contains commercial offices. Nearby attractions include the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Newark Museum, Prudential Center and Red Bull Arena.
