Premier academic credentials.

Real-world experience.

Our faculty’s formidable credentials and academic accomplishments are a point of pride at RWU Law – but we're definitely not an ivory tower.

Our professors have practiced in virtually every area of the law and published widely in the nation's most prestigious law reviews; their opinions have appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune, the Boston Globe, the Providence Journal and virtually every other major news outlet in the United States – from CNN to NPR. They've testified before Congress, argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, practiced with top law firms and respected nonprofit organizations, represented detainees at Guantanamo, served in the United Nations and the Armed Forces, and held leadership positions in such organizations as the American Bar Association and the American Law Institute.

As an RWU Law student, all of this collective experience is at your fingertips, a vast reservoir of theoretical prowess and real-world know-how.
