74% of RWU Law 1L students come from outside of Rhode Island. There are 22 states represented in the Class of 2017 alone.
Few degrees are more versatile than the Juris Doctor. RWU Law’s Office of Career Development has the resources you’ll need to navigate a successful career path.
The legal market has endured a significant shift over the last five years. RWU Law is responding to the changing landscape by, among other efforts, increasing our already significant commitment to experiential education – more clinical opportunities, pro bono initiatives, simulation and skills courses and externships – all of which emphasize learning by doing, making our students more practice ready.
While such institutional measures cannot solve the broader employment picture facing recent and future graduates from all law schools, RWU Law graduates are putting their degrees to work in a broad array of professional contexts – from law firms to community service organizations; from public to corporate settings; and onward to politics, education or finance.
