Affordable Excellence at RWU LAW

A world-class education. Quantifiable outcomes.

RWU Law Roger Williams University School of Law is an institution on the move. Our faculty hail from the nation’s top law schools, boasting an academic productivity that quantifiably outstrips the competition, while bringing a wealth of hands-on experience – regional, national and international – in virtually every area of the law to the student-teacher experience.

RWU Law students reap the benefits of this dynamic through high bar-pass rates and excellent professional placements. By attending Rhode Island’s only law school, they gain unparalleled access to the state’s most sought-after judicial internships and the undivided attention of a state bar that functions in many ways as a de facto extension of our fast-growing alumni base. Our students are regularly exposed to top legal minds. Leading members of the state and federal bench and bar teach here as adjuncts. Nationally known legal experts lecture at our podiums, both as permanent faculty and distinguished guests. Each year, the full panel of the Rhode Island Supreme Court sits to hear final arguments in our internal moot court competition.

If you’re serious about forging a future in the legal profession, it’s time to take a serious look at RWU Law.
