External Competitions

Each year members of the RWU Law Moot Court Board compete at national and regional competitions, in teams of two or three members. RWU Law students participate in a wide variety of moot court competitions, which focus on different areas of the law including products liability, criminal law and procedure, constitutional law, and family law. 

After the moot court team completes the appellate brief, team members work with distinguished Moot Court Board alumni and local members of the legal community to practice mooting before a panel of judges to develop and refine their legal arguments. Numerous alumni also support the Moot Court Board by returning to coach moot court teams. Faculty members assist with specialized subject matter by discussing and analyzing principles of law related to the competition with the team members to ensure a comprehensive understanding for oral arguments.

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.
