Fastest Growing Law Specialties

September 13th, 2010 No comments

The September issue of National Jurist showcased an article about the “Specialties with greatest growth” in law and I was thrilled to see Corporate and Health Law on the list.  Widener Law offers institutes on the Delaware campus for both concentrations.  In fact, our highly respected faculty in both health and corporate fields continually develop new programs, publish regularly and attend international conferences.  Their guidance and mentorship is second to none, involving practical methods and personal attention.

National Jurist also recognized Environmental law as one of Widener’s strongest programs.  The dual campus Environmental Law Center handles issues surrounding sustainability, climate change and energy, toxic torts, community service, government action.  The highly active environmental law clinic estimates that more than $ 20 million dollars in compliance, facility upgrade and Supplemental Environmental Project expenditures have resulted from citizen suits.

Widener Law is at the forefront of legal developments.  To learn more about our programs please visit or meet an Admissions representative at a college near you.  We will be traveling extensively this fall so please do not hesitate to stop by our table!

Environmental Law and Policy Certificate

January 14th, 2010 No comments

Widener Law’s Environmental Law initiatives will be broadened through our new certificate in Environmental Law and Policy on the Delaware campus. Recently, Widener developed an Environmental Law Center combining the expertise of faculty and administrators on both campuses. The goals include:

▪ Studying, making proposals for and evaluating the implementation of environmental, energy and climate-change programs in Pennsylvania and Delaware at the state and municipal levels.

▪ Developing, advocating for and evaluating innovative laws and legal proposals relating to the environment, energy and climate change. This will be done by putting on conferences open to the public and through faculty research and writing.

▪ Helping public and private decision makers solve legal problems relating to environment, energy and climate change.

▪ Collaborating with other higher-education institutions on environmental, energy and climate-change matters.

Widener Law continues to develop programs to better our environment and community. We hope you are willing to join us in this endeavor.   If you have questions about our environmental law programs, please contact Professor John Dernbach,, on the Harrisburg campus or Professor Jim May,, on the Delaware campus.
