As Rhode Island’s only law school, Roger Williams University School of Law offers students a level of access, connection, and experience that few institutions can rival. We have the undivided attention of our state bench and bar, exceptional clinical and externship programs, a world-class faculty, and a broad and accomplished alumni base—all combining to create an invaluable network of career entry points. Whether studying at our beautiful seaside campus in Bristol or getting real-world experience at our exciting new urban campus in the dynamic capital city of Providence, our students enjoy “insider access” to choices, experiences, and opportunities that give them the experiential edge in launching their legal careers.
Our goal at RWU Law is to deliver a rigorous yet personalized and, crucially, marketable legal education that positions our graduates to thrive in their early career, even in challenging legal employment markets—while avoiding the rising tuition costs and spiraling student debt. So in 2014, we took the unprecedented step of lowering our tuition by 18 percent. Today, the Affordable Excellence Tuition Guarantee remains in force, and the savings are significant. For the 2018–2019 academic year, RWU Law has fixed its tuition at $35,735, making us the best-priced ABA-accredited private law school in the Northeast—and one of the best legal education values on the entire East Coast. And tuition will remain frozen at this rate for up to three years, as long as the student remains continuously enrolled full time.
