Alumni support and vision are the hallmarks of any great institution of higher learning. The support and enthusiasm of RWU Law's more than  3,300 alumni are integral to shaping and realizing its goals and its future.

RWU Law alumni events are enjoying consistently high attendance and interest. The Law Alumni Association's Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament raises funds for the Law Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, with alumni, faculty, staff, and students in attendance. It's a great turnout and a great result -- but your participation and support are needed too.

As an RWU Law alum, the School of Law holds a very important place in your past -- and should also hold a place of importance in your present and future. If you are interested in further information regarding the Law Alumni Association or any of its committees, please contact the Office of Law Alumni Relations at (401) 254-4541 or e-mail
