WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — The Widener University School of Law has announced that, under a re-branding effort, it will now be called the Delaware Law School.
WDEL-FM reports the university in Wilmington announced the change Wednesday. The school also has a new dean.
Dean Rod Smolla says he’s ready to being a new chapter at the Delaware Law School. He previously served as the president of Furman University in South Carolina.
Widener also has a law school in Pennsylvania.
The Bar Association approved plans earlier this year to separate and accredit the campuses.
