Widener University Delaware Law School (also known as Delaware Law School) and Widener University Commonwealth Law School (also known as Widener Law Commonwealth) are Widener University's two, ABA-accredited law schools, which had been (until July 1, 2015) the two campuses of Widener University School of Law. The latter, unified school had been founded in 1971 as "The Delaware Law School" and operated on one of Widener's campuses, in Wilmington, Delaware. In 1989, the law school expanded to another Widener campus, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and became the Widener University School of Law. On July 1, 2015, the two campuses were separated into two distinct law schools that operate independently of each other, but remain part of the university. Each law school has its own dean.
