Faculty Spotlights

Our faculty's formidable credentials and academic accomplishments are a point of pride at RWU Law – but so are their front-line legal contributions. As Dean David Logan has noted, "While we have a faculty of distinguished scholars, a good number of them are also very much 'boots on the ground' lawyers out there in the real world, making things happen and making a difference."
