Affordable Excellence at RWU LAW

A world-class education. Quantifiable outcomes.

RWU LawRWU 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 and 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.”
