RWU Law Offers Choice in Pursuing Law Degree

Accelerated and Flexible options let students to tailor legal education to fit their lifestyle.

RWU Law StudentsBRISTOL, R.I., April 10, 2013 – Roger Williams University School of Law now offers students the option to earn a three-year J.D. degree on an accelerated 2½-year track, or a more flexible four-year track.

Students in the Accelerated Graduation Option can complete a J.D degree in two and one-half years, thereby saving an entire semester of living expenses, taking the bar examination and entering the job market nearly six months earlier than their classmates. These students will enjoy the same elective, clinical and other educational opportunities as traditional three-year students. They will be required to take summer courses, but these are scheduled during the evening to allow for daytime employment and externship experiences.

For students with family obligations, or who wish to continue working part-time, RWU Law offers a Four-Year J.D. option, allowing participants to take fewer credits each semester and earn their degree on a more flexible track.  Students on this track will generally have classes scheduled on two to three days per week, and they have the option of taking evening courses during the academic year and over the summer.  These students are also able to enjoy the same elective, clinical and other educational opportunities as traditional three-year students.
