"I love the community feel and environment.

Our professors are highly knowledgeable and will go above and beyond to make sure you understand the material being taught. The small class sizes also make class discussions very interactive and engaging. Additionally, the relationships I have made with my classmates will not only be a supportive network for my future legal endeavors, but friendships that will last though the years.”

What I like most about Delaware Law?

“Delaware Law prepares its students for success. Law school is a daunting and even scary prospect. Succeeding in law school seems insurmountable, however, Delaware Law prepares its students to have the exact opposite attitude. Delaware Law provides a supportive, motivating support network through its faculty and staff. Additionally, Delaware Law fosters a familial like environment amongst the students, which provides relationships that will endure through school and life to come. The combination of all these factors makes it hard not to succeed, and that is what I like most about Delaware Law.”

“I like the individualized attention and sense of community the school fosters. Coming from such a large school it was impossible to know everyone in your class and one on one time with teachers was sparse. Here teachers go out of their way to reach out to students one on one and help them achieve as much as they can in the classroom. Your class becomes very close, everyone knows everyone and you get more of a family environment.”

“There are many great aspects of being a student at Delaware Law. First and foremost, the professors are extremely knowledgeable of the law and genuinely care about the students’ education. Whether it's being accessible via email, office hours, conducting review sessions or just taking some time after class, the professors are always willing to assist with the success of the students. The staff are great, as well. What I like most is that I am not just a number, rather, the faculty and staff have taken the time to get to know me and are always willing to help me with whatever I may need. Lastly, one of the reasons that I personally chose Delaware Law is the convenience of housing that it offers on campus. I didn’t have to worry about finding a place to live and as a result, I don’t have to deal with the hassles of a daily commute. Transitioning to becoming a law student is very difficult, but Delaware Law made the transition fairly stress free.”

What does Annemarie like most about Delaware Law?

What I like most about Delaware Law is the community atmosphere which is promoted through students and faculty alike. Since the beginning of my 1L year everyone here has been most welcoming. This is especially pleasant because even though students are graded against one another, most will still go out of their way to help each other. Our professors and administration staff are also readily available to answer any questions that anyone could have. Lastly, being that it is a small campus, everybody knows everybody and there is a sense of family that you couldn't get a larger institution.”
