Out of 29 total state clerkship opportunities in Rhode Island, RWU Law grads hold 18 of those positions for the 2012-2013 term. This includes 8 of 11 clerkships with the Rhode Island Supreme Court.
First year students will automatically be registered for fall classes in one of two sections (Section A or Section B). Individual class schedules with section assignement (excluding Legal Practice sections) will be mailed starting in late July. Legal Practice sections will be assigned on the first day of Orientation.
You will have reading assignments for the first class meetings in all of your courses.
First Assignments will be posted on the admitted students section of the website beginning August 1st.
Reminder to be sure that you have purchased the correct Criminal Law casebook. There was a change of section for the professors earlier this summer. If you have Section A, you have Professor Ritchie (not Prof. Sack) and vice-versa. Their casebooks are below.
