Setting the stage for a lifetime of contributions in public interest law.
RWU Law is committed to the belief that lawyers should serve their communities, and that introducing students to public service can set the stage for a lifetime of valuable contributions to society.
The vehicle for this mission is our Feinstein Institute for Legal Service, which provides a staggering array of hands-on learning experiences through its Public Interest and Judicial Externship Program and its Public Service Program. It also offers generous summer stipends, public-interest scholarships, a speaker series and other distinctive law school/community partnerships. In addition, our unique Pro Bono Collaborative mobilizes Rhode Island law firms, law students and community organizations to provide needed legal assistance for underserved residents of the state.
