All law students participate in a skills curriculum, which provides hands-on training in small class settings.

In addition to its legal training programs, Seton Hall Law School offers an M.S.J. (master of science in jurisprudence) in Health, Science & Technology Law, a program for students who want to use principles of the law in their careers without becoming lawyers.
