The most affordable ABA-accredited private law school in the Northeast – and one of the best values on the East Coast.

Building on our 24-year legacy as Rhode Island’s only law school, and a leading institution in Southern New England, RWU Law has fixed its tuition for the 2018-19 academic year at $35,735, making us the best-priced ABA-accredited private law school in the Northeast – and one of the best legal education values on the entire East Coast.

Moreover, your tuition remains frozen at this rate for up to three years, as long as you remain continuously enrolled as a full-time student.

Best of all, you’ll receive a rigorous, personalized and, above all, marketable legal education – one that will have you job-ready and well-placed to thrive in your early career, even in today’s tough legal employment market. To help ensure these positive outcomes, RWU Law has, in recent years:

  • instituted an explicit guarantee that every qualified student will be afforded a substantial clinic experience through one of our in-house clinics or a clinical externship.
  • created a Semester in Practice program (including an exciting D.C. Semester in Practice option) that offers total immersion – and a full semester of credit – for legal training in Rhode Island and far beyond.
  • launched an innovative Business Start-Up Clinic and Veterans Disability Appeals Field Clinic, to augment our popular Criminal Defense Clinic and Immigration Clinic.
  • introduced an expanded Feinstein Center for Pro Bono and Experiential Learning, which will serve as your one-stop shop for all of our experiential education programs.

All of this is yours, in addition to the values that are already hallmarks of an RWU Law education – high bar pass rates; excellent professional placements; a top-notch and accessible faculty; an engaged and ever-expanding alumni base; and unparalleled access to Rhode Island’s bench and bar.

Lower tuition. Higher value. An outstanding legal education that prepares graduates for long-term career success in the law.

That’s RWU Law.
