What does Amanda like most about Delaware Law?

“I love the size of the school and the classes. It was very easy to get intimidated about law school by watching tv shows and coming to Delaware Law has completely broken any preconceived notions. My classmates and professors have been nothing shy of helpful, engaged, and informative. Also, being in a small state it is easy to find connections between people around you, which has been very beneficial in gaining employment throughout law school.”

What does Maria like most about Delaware Law?

“I believe the best part of Delaware Law is the community. The professors are accessible and always willing to meet if there are any questions about the material. The students are encouraging. When I first started law school, I thought that the professors were going to be distant and the students would be so competitive that I would not foster friendships. However, I am happy to say that was never the case at Delaware Law. While the students are competitive, I have found that this environment created a strong bond as everyone goes through a similar struggle throughout law school. This environment and sense of community are the traits that make me proud to be a student at Delaware Law.”

What does Paul like most about Delaware Law?

"Delaware Law's professors want to help you reach your goals. Professors are open to answer any questions you may have about the subject matter being taught. I chose Delaware Law school due to its location in the Corporate Capital of the world and due to students having the opportunity to interact with professors outside the classroom."

"I come from a small town, Williamsport, located in Central PA. Additionally, I attended a small school in Williamsport for undergrad, similar to the size of Delaware Law. I knew the second I visited Delaware Law School that this was going to be my home for the next 3 years, because of its size and its professor/student ratio. Delaware Law has exceeded my expectations. The professors are beyond helpful and truly want what's best for their students. The student body is great and I have met some of the most incredible friends I know will be lifelong best friends. I have had the greatest experience here."
