This week Professor Ruskell and Dean Lalli held an information for 1Ls and 2Ls about preparing for the bar exam and what it was all about. It was extremely informative to hear about the differences in manner different states administer the bar exam and paying for both prep classes, living and the admissions itself. It is a nice feeling to know that our administrators are already concerned about us being prepared to take the next step in accessing our chosen career I guess law school is only the penultimate step in becoming an attorney, because that isn't stressful enough. :-)

The spring portion of the Women Who Lead series wrapped up for the year with two outstanding programs. The first, entitled “Law Graduates Making a Difference,” focused on women who have achieved much, despite being relatively early in their legal careers. The panelists were: Kim Ahern (‘09) who has already made her mark as a community activist, and who was an Obama delegate to the Democratic National Convention; Leah Donaldson (‘07), a litigator at the leading firm Motley Rice and President-elect of the RI Women’s Bar Association; Betty Anne Waters (‘98), whose pioneering work with DNA is...

For those getting ready to take a bar exam or two, it is recommended that you read back and current issues of the legal newspaper(s) published for the state in which you plan on taking the bar exam.  Summaries of important court decisions are reported in legal newspapers and a significant case can be a source of inspiration for a bar examiner’s essay question!  The Law Library subscribes to ALM publishers’ Connecticut Law Tribune, Legal Intelligencer (Pennsylvania), and New York Law Journal.  For those taking the New Jersey bar exam, you can read ALM’s New Jersey Law Journal....

RWU Law is deeply embedded in the social fabric of Rhode Island, and its faculty, students, and alums play a variety of important roles in shaping its future.  For example, the January issue of Providence Monthly ran its “10 People Who Can Change the City” feature, and once again a member of the RWU Law family was featured…Kim Ahern (’09).  Kim was a hugely successful student: Editor-in-Chief of the Roger Williams Law Review and President of the Alliance, the student group focused on LGBT issues.  She also found the time to actively campaign for Barack Obama and got to serve as...

First year you have no choice as to what classes you take or what your schedule will be like.  You will be assigned to one of three sections.  The people in this section will be your classmates, in every class, for the rest of the year.  So make friends.  These are the people you will need to rely on if you miss class and need notes, have questions about an assignment, or just want to talk something out.  The great thing about the students at this school is that the majority of the other students are willing to help you out in these instances.  It's not so...

3L Ron Rose (Manlius, NY) and 2L J.P. Pruett (Harrisonburg, Va.) knew they had their work cut out for them; a team from mighty Duke stood between them and the championship in the twelfth annual Wechsler Moot Court Competition, the only national event to focus on substantive Criminal Law. Sponsored by the University of Buffalo Law School, this year’s competition involved issues arising under a Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. Among the law schools represented were the University of Georgia, the University of Wisconsin, the University of Maryland, the University of Kansas...

On Tuesday, February 23, the Roger Williams University School of Law conducted its second United States Supreme Court swearing-in ceremony. A dozen grads from our earliest years (an applicant must have been admitted to practice for a period of at least three years in order to qualify) had a remarkable experience.  A number of them got together the night before at a reception hosted by the D.C. Chapter of our Law Alumni Association, and had a chance to catch up with some of their many classmates who are working in the area, as well as chatting with U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse,...

We were delighted to learn that Providence Mayor David Cicilline has appointed RWU Law’s Jorge Elorza, an Associate Professor of Law, to the Housing Court.  The Mayor lauded Jorge’s commitment to helping the poor among us find justice in the complex legal system. This will enable him to continue to blend his academic interest in housing issues (he teaches the survey course on Property and an elective on Housing Law and Policy) with the real world of how the law actually works in practice, a boon to both his students and litigants. Below is our press release and links to earlier...
