The crowning achievement for many 3Ls is the opportunity to serve as a law clerk to a judge after graduation. Judicial clerkships provide a great transition from the ivory tower of law school to practice, and often yield a mentor/mentee relationship that lasts a lifetime (as was the case for me). http://law.rwu.edu/sites/law.rwu.edu/files/flipbooks/spring2012/index.html#/20/
I am proud to report on the success of recent RWU Law grads in the highly competitive clerkship market: more than 15% of the class of 2012 landed judicial clerkships.
Below you can see how that number compares with other schools in New England, and following that is a chart setting out how RWU grads fare against graduates of “top 25” schools.
