      Book ScannerThe KIC book scanners are located within the Print/Scan/Copy 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/Scan/Copy 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.
