Dean’s Scholars Program
For every gift of $500 or more to the RWU Law Annual Fund, a law student will be awarded a scholarship in your name. Students will be selected based on their academic performance and demonstrated financial need and you will have the opportunity to meet your RWU Law Dean’s Scholar in the coming academic year. By supporting this program, you will help to provide funds that are used to award vital scholarships to qualified and deserving students at RWU Law.
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.
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.
