Kathleen MacAndrew is the library’s Catalog, Metadata, and Archives Librarian. In this important role, she creates and maintains records in the WebCatalog which allows users to discover materials in the library’s collection of print and digital resources. She also works to preserve the law school’s history by providing access to archival materials, overseeing their care, and contributing to the School of Law digital repository. In addition to providing tools for accessing the materials, she also assists patrons at the Reference Desk in locating and using the materials. When not keeping the law collection organized, Kathleen enjoys photography, kayaking, golf, and following New England sports teams. Most of all she enjoys spending time with her family and friends.

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.
