Student Ambassadors

Meet RWU Law’s featured Student Ambassadors. Our Student Ambassadors are a group of current students who generously volunteer with the Office of Admissions. Ambassadors give on-campus tours to prospective students, assist with info sessions and accepted students events, attend off-campus recruiting events, and chat with prospective students about RWU Law and their experiences here. Feel free to contact a Student Ambassador with questions you may have about the RWU Law community and student experience.

If you prefer to speak with an Admissions Counselor, e-mail admissions@rwu.edu or call 401-254-4555 for the Office of Admissions.

Close Course Type Descriptions

Course Types

We have classified RWU Law classes under the following headers. One of the following course types will be attached to each course which will allow students to narrow down their search while looking for classes.

Core Course

Students in the first and second year are required to take classes covering the following aspects of the law—contracts, torts, property, criminal law, civil procedure, and constitutional law, evidence, and professional responsibility.  Along with these aspects, the core curriculum will develop legal reasoning skills.

Elective

After finishing the core curriculum the remaining coursework toward the degree is completed through upper level elective courses.  Students can choose courses that peak their interests or courses that go along with the track they are following.

Seminar

Seminars are classes where teachers and small groups of students focus on a specific topic and the students complete a substantial research paper.

Clinics/Externships

Inhouse Clinics and Clinical Externships legal education is law school training in which students participate in client representation under the supervision of a practicing attorney or law professor.  RWU Law's Clinical Programs offer unique and effective learning opportunities and the opportunity for practical experience while still in law school.
