Sexual Assault Prevention Training

Required for New Law Students (JD & MSL)

As part of our sexual assault prevention program for Roger Williams Law School, you are required to complete a two-part, online Sexual Assault Prevention training. This training will empower you to make well-informed decisions about issues that affect your years at Roger Williams Law School and will assist our efforts to create an environment safe from sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, sexual harassment, and stalking. Roger Williams University partners with EverFi, whose mission is to help students address critical life skills such as sexual assault prevention in higher education institutions across the country. Each year over 500,000 students complete these courses. The courses may include surveys to help personalize your experience and measure students’ attitudes and behaviors. All survey responses are confidential; the school will only receive information about the student body as a whole and will never see individual students’ answers.

The online training (Part 1) will take approximately 45 minutes to complete, and must be completed by August 15, 2018, prior to Orientation. You will receive a brief follow-up survey (Part 2) approximately 30-45 days later. This second part will take less than 10 minutes and must be completed by October 15, 2018.

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.
