Zero-LClick to Open
RWU Law has partnered with Harvard to provide Zero-L to our incoming students. Developed by Harvard Law School, Zero-L is an online course designed to ensure all incoming students, whatever their backgrounds and previous areas of study, start with foundational legal knowledge that enables them to thrive in law school. This course will be available in early July to students attending RWU Law in fall 2020. The RWU Law Academic Success director will inform incoming students how to access the course and provide a recommended “pathway” through this course before July 1.
