Representing Providence

Posted by David Logan on 09/23/2013 at 02:39 PM

One of RWU Law’s great partners is the Providence City Solicitor’s Office and City Solicitor Jeffrey Padwa.  Nearly one-half of the capital city’s 22 attorneys are RWU Law graduates (link).  From civil litigation to criminal prosecution; from housing court to family court to municipal court; from legislation to open government issues to tax appeals to land use, the attorneys in the City Solicitor’s office manage an extraordinary portfolio of legal issues.  According to Solicitor Padwa, those who are interested in working in the Solicitor’s office should apply for an internship during their law school career.  More information on the Solicitor’s office is available here (link).
