Important documents for new students including orientation schedules and important student forms are available on the respective Orientation pages for both Harrisburg and Delaware. Additional resources will continue to be added to these pages all the way through Orientation.

“In order to be fully prepared for the Intro to Legal Process course that takes place during Orientation, students should view the posted information, which includes first assignments, course expectations, and required textbooks,” advises Harrisburg Registrar Molly Acri.

Orientation week begins on Monday, August 11th on both campuses. Incoming students should consult the schedules available on the respective Orientation pages for more information.

“Given the great variety in the experiences of our students before law school, we have designed the classes for all students to learn core concepts and skills essential to a successful performance in law school. While the week provides only an introduction to law school, we expect students to take seriously the opportunity to begin building habits that will be useful throughout law school,” says Delaware campus Assistant Dean for the Office of Student Affairs Patrick J. Johnston.

“In my experience, the Orientation week provides a great opportunity for students to get to know the Widener Law community - including faculty, staff and fellow classmates. The scheduled activities really give students a good idea of what to expect as they embark on their law school career,” Acri says.
