RWU Law is the only Sea Grant Legal Program north of the Mason-Dixon Line and only one of 4 in the country.
Few degrees are more versatile than the Juris Doctor and RWU Law’s Office of Career Development has the resources you’ll need to navigate a successful career path.
A VERSATILE DEGREE
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.
