RWU Law's ‘one-stop shop’ for experiential learning
RWU Law is committed to the belief that experiential learning is at the core of a legal education. In fact, we guarantee that every qualified student (beginning with the class admitted in the fall of 2013) will receive a substantial clinical experience through our in-house legal clinics or externship programs.
The Feinstein Center for Pro Bono and Experiential Education serves as one-stop shopping for all of the law school’s experiential education programs.

Public Interest Law
In addition, the Center is the hub of public interest law at RWU, introducing students to hands-on pro bono opportunities throughout the law school, and setting the stage for graduates to make a lifetime of valuable contributions to society.
Through our Pro Bono Experiential Learning Requirement, all students are required to perform at least 50 hours of hands-on learning while in law school although many students do hundreds of hours while at RWU Law.
Even first-year students can take part in our Alternative Spring Break by spending an intensive week doing public defender work in the Bronx, or legal services work in Mississippi, or mountain top removal work in West Virginia, in addition to many other options.
These and other programs help ensure that our practice-ready graduates are well prepared to serve their clients, give back to their communities and enhance the legal profession.
