Our Pro Bono Collaborative mobilizes Rhode Island law firms, law students and community organizations to provide desperately needed legal assistance for the underserved residents of the state. The unique program includes 10 major law firms, over 20 community-based organizations and several dozen law students.
The only law school in Rhode Island, Roger Williams University School of Law offers students a rigorous, hands-on, affordable legal education in a supportive environment. RWU Law is a leader in providing experiential and pro bono education opportunities for its students, and has a legacy of outstanding scholarship, accomplished alumni, and profound engagement with the bench and bar.
