Professor Bruce I. Kogan

RWU Law guarantees every qualified student a substantial clinical experience. Our rich clinical and other experiential offerings are directly attributable to the work of Professor Bruce I. Kogan, who designed and created many of our experiential programs in the formative years of the law school. Thank you to every member of the RWU Law community who helped us to raise more than $15,000 – far surpassing our goal of raising $10,000 on the day! Your gifts honor Bruce and contribute to the continued success of our students.

Please join your fellow members of the RWU Law community in honoring Bruce and contributing to the continued success of our students.

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.


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.


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


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.
