RISE Up RWU Law
Support RWU Law Students & Programs That Help Those Most In Need
Roger Williams University School of Law has always been about a strong sense of community and a belief that we are stronger when we work together and support each other.
That community is striving to address the evolving needs of our students, who are now trying to adjust to dramatic changes in their world. You can help us by considering a gift to a fund that will help those students and a fund that will keep our pro bono programs strong during this time of great stress.

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.
