Employment Status Update
The Office of Career Development strives to maintain accurate employment statistics for RWU Law graduates. This is important not only for required reporting to the National Association for Law Placement and the American Bar Association, but also for students to examine trends in the labor market. For these reasons, we ask that all alumni keep in touch with the Office of Career Development and inform us of your current employment status. Report your current employment status
