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.
A world-class education. Quantifiable outcomes.
RWU Law isn’t like every other law school.
We’re the go-to source for legal expertise across the state, and an integral part of the regional legal culture and conversation. With a world-class faculty, a broad and accomplished alumni base (including the Attorney General of Rhode Island), and (as the state's only law school) the undivided attention of the Rhode Island bench and bar, we offer an entry into the legal profession like no other in these challenging economic times.
Whether on our bucolic seaside campus in Bristol or our dynamic urban campus in Providence, we offer our students a level of choice, experience, access and connections that will help you prepare to hit the ground running in your legal career.
As Providence Mayor (and RWU Law Professor) Jorge O. Elorza has observed, “The entire state is invested in the success of this law school.”
