Featured Distinguished Alumni
Our over 12,000 alumni are as diverse as their interests, areas of focus, locations, and career paths, but they share one commonality – they are shining examples of the success of The Delaware Way; a nationally distinguished culture of civility, integrity, and mutual respect.
Among this group of talented individuals are current and past presidents of the Delaware, New Jersey, and Philadelphia bar associations; and more than 150 sitting judges, including one sitting Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court. Legislators, an Attorney General, a radio personality, and a former newspaper owner and publisher – the list goes on. These Delaware Law School alumni have made an impact in their respective fields and, in so doing, in the lives of others.
While we are immensely proud of all of our alumni and their collective commitment to embodying The Delaware Way, some have established a national reputation or excelled in a way that has garnered public recognition. Their accomplishments, and those of all of our alumni, are the greatest measure of our success.
