Print Services

Print StationThree networked printers are available in the Law Library Print Center. Computers in the open area and both computer classrooms can print to any of the Library's network printers. In the Library Print Center, law students also have access to Lexis printers. 

The Law School is currently providing free printing for law students at the Law Library’s print center. 

Copyright Considerations: Copyright guidelines suggest that the limit for copying/printing a copyrighted work is one chapter or roughly 10% of a volume.  
  1. Wireless Printing:  Send your document through
  2. Printing from the Library’s computers:You do not need to submit your projects through Hawkprint if using these computers. If you are concerned about privacy, restart the computer when you are done printing.
For best results, download or save documents found online on Bridges or other web-based applications before you send the print request, otherwise your document will not print properly.
  1. To print from eBooks, such as study aids, download the pages needed and then print wirelessly or from a library computer. Note that the publisher’s site will usually alert you if your request exceeds the copyright guidelines.
  2. Double-sided and Color Printing: The Law Library printers do not provide double-sided printing. If you prefer double-sided materials or color printing, use the campus copy center.
  3. Printing Limitations: Because there are only three printers available for the printing needs of all law students, we request that you consider the following before submitting a print request:
    1. Limit requests to printing required for immediate class/research use and other necessary materials.
    2. Print materials for one week or class at a time, not the entire semester.
    3. Consider whether only a portion of a document needs to be printed.
    4. During high demand times, it is necessary to allow time to meet submission deadlines.
  4. Alternatives to the Library Printers: 
    1. Lexis Printers: There are two high-capacity free Lexis printers. If you need cases, statutes, or secondary materials, up to 1,000 pages, please use your Lexis+ credentials to locate and print these from Lexis.
      Lexis prints double-sided on 3-hole-punched paper for your convenience. Select either of the LexisNexis Printers in the Print Center from the options. DO NOT send Lexis materials through Hawkprint.
      This will help spread printing demands across our available printers and better ensure that everyone’s needs are met. Lexis printing is ALWAYS free.
  5. Finishing Services: Staplers, 2- or 3-hole punches, and paper-clips are available in the Library Print Center and at the Circulation Desk.
  6. Scanning: If you need assistance with the library's KIC book scanner, please ask at the Circulation. 
  7. Other Printing Centers on Campus: In the event that we cannot meet your print or copy needs, visit the University Library or the Copy Center located in the mail room.  Note that neither offers free printing.  Please visit the websites below for more information.

Book ScannerThe KIC book scanners are located within the Print Center. They allow the library’s patrons to scan books or, by using the sheet feeders, to scan documents. The scans can be delivered via USB, Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, email, or QR code.

The microfiche and microfilm reader/scanner is also located in the Print Center. Library patrons are able to read and scan to disk or USB any of the materials the library makes available via microfiche and microfilm.


There are web-based services available for use to send or receive faxes for free. The library does not have any fax machines for public use.

To send a short fax, consider:

Faxzero is a free web-based service that is advertiser supported; the site puts an advertisement on a coversheet that the recipient sees. It permits users to send up to two free faxes per day to machines in the United States, Puerto Rico, or Canada. The maximum file size for the fax is 20MB. For longer or advertisement free faxes, there is a charge of $1.99 a page via Paypal. International rates may also be higher, typically around $4 per fax. Faxzero supports .doc or .pdf files, image files such as .gif, or a text based message.

To receive a fax, consider:

The eFaxFree plan allows you to get a fax number (not always a local number) that sends faxes as an attachment in your email. The free plan provides the ability to receive up to 10 faxes per month. It does not provide the ability to send faxes for free using the eFaxFree plan, but the eFax Plus account provides the option of paying for a monthly plan with many other features.

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.
