SHL Alum

4.0 of 5 stars

June 2018 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

School truly has fantastic professors that are engaging and intelligent. Coursework made studying for the bar much easier than anticipated. Clinical experience has still been one of the highlights of my career. Excellent alumni network in NJ - SHL alumni dominate the larger NJ firms and judicial clerkships (including federal district court).

Downers

It is an expensive school for the ranking and limited geographical mobility of the degree. Still challenging to break into the NYC market, although the top 10% of the class has a decent shot.

Comments

Consider whether Rutgers, a state alternative, makes better financial sense. I attended on scholarship and because I fortunately did well academically, had no issues finding employment and a federal clerkship. I will say, however, the lower parts of the class may struggle to find decent jobs.

Great School

atmosphere; professors are top notch; alumni connections are strong, especially in New Jersey

Downers

Of course, tuition could be lower but it is no more than any other comparable school and with that in mind it is a great value considering the terrific employment outcomes.

Comments

Seton Hall is undervalued. I think it is more of a top 20 school with a top 50 type perception. It is definitely on an upward projection and has been for a long time.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Despite the ranking, excellent law school experience.

Fantastic professors, many of whom were practitioners prior to teaching and add their practical perspectives to the material.

Downers

The cost to attend is high, especially in comparison to Rutgers' in-state school tuition.

Comments

Don't let negative online reviews and articles deter you - if you want to practice in New Jersey, Seton Hall will provide a quality legal education and strong alumni network.
