Today, Widener University has officially split its law school into two separate units. The ABA has approved the move. Widener's Wilmington, Delaware campus will be called Widener University Delaware Law School. Rodney Smolla, former law dean of the University of Richmond and Washington and Lee, and a visiting professor at Georgia Law, will lead this campus. The Harrisburg campus will now be called Widener University Commonwealth Law School. Christian Johnson, a professor at the University of Utah, will be its dean.
