RWU Law is one of only 5 law schools in the country that specializes in marine affairs. Of these schools, RWU Law is only one of 2 that specialize in admiralty and maritime law.
Each applicant must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), which is offered four times a year in February, June, October, and December.
We recommend that you take the LSAT no later than February in the year in which you intend to matriculate. Therefore, if you are applying for the fall 2016 term, we recommend that you take the LSAT no later than February 2016. A June 2016 test score will be considered on a case by case basis.
Please contact the Office of Admissions at (401) 254-4555 before registering for the June exam if you plan to take the test in the year in which you intend to matriculate. You will need to complete a June LSAT Acknowledgment Form.
LSAT scores are considered stale after three years.
Additional information on the LSAT – including test dates, test locations, sample tests, and online registration – is available from the Law School Admission Council at www.lsac.org.
