RWU Law has some great faculty and some not-so-great faculty and you'll learn who to avoid if you just talk to an upper class student. Most of the faculty though are well respected in their field and are certainly qualified to teach their respective subjects. Above all, I have never experienced an issue accessing one of my professors and the administration is very pleasant and easy to work with. My only negative remarks might be about some of the student body who seem to have a chip on their shoulder about being here but I am sure that is the case with all law schools. Additionally, the class selection right now is lacking. There needs to be more a greater selection to encompass everyone's interests as I am running into that problem now.
Finally, the facilities are well maintained and nice. The student bistro is adequate. My only complaint about the facilities is the heating issue. Some days the building is cold and others piping hot. You need to dress in layers in the winter.Overall though, I am happy with my choice in Roger Williams. I could have gone to a higher ranked school but my priorities were not necessarily typical of most law school applicants. I was looking for a school that would provide a good education and where I would enjoy my time here. I have found that to be the case.

"This law school is an up-and-commer" I tell myself, as I try to ease the pain and stop the vommitting.
I went here because of a 50% scholarship. Hell, now I'll just be 75,000 in debt. That's not so much right?
Well, since you can't get a job anyway, that 75k could have been a nice down payment on a new house. Don't make the same mistake as my classmates made by listening to "hype" from the Admisssions Office prior to enrollment. This is a bad school which is desperate for your precious student loan dollars

These three words sum up my experience at the school's graduate program. Graduates are supposed to be trained as leaders in the communications field. But if you're female, you're already at a disadvantage since the faculty is mostly male and all hold the view that a woman's place is either in the kitchen or the whorehouse and nowhere near the newsroom. How can they train anyone to be unbiased when they hold such obvious biases?
Money for the program was spent on exotic, international family vacations by President Nirshel. Also, they'd falsely claim that expensive items from offices had been stolen (when they were the only ones with access to the office) so they could make up some of the difference for program money they spent somewhere else.FYI, if you're a member of any minority, they'll try to wash you out of the program faster than you can "discrimination." It's disgusting.

To repeat another review-Where does all of our money go? Tuition is outrageous, but there is very little to show for it, except for the President's house that cost millions of dollars to build, yet, he doesn't even live there...and let us not forget the special dance studio he had built for his 14 year old daughter! Law Student apartments don't have constant hot water, and many students are squished into rooms meant to house fewer then they are.
They constantly reassure us (lie) that will find jobs and pass the bar, but most grads can't find work (or even pass the bar.)This school is a scam!

But yeah, Roger Williams is a definite scam. If you have $30,000 burning a hole in your pocket, feel free to enroll. Chances are terribly low that youre going to graduate. They clearly pull the same crap that Cooley does -- accept a lot of students knowing full well that a large percent of them will not complete the first year. Its hard wired into the system there that a large number of students CANT finish the first year. Just one of many scams that that place is running. If you didnt get in anywhere else and youre a high stakes gambler, perhaps give it a go. Otherwise forget it. Actually, even if it is the only place you get in (other than Cooley, of course which should also be avoided) Id recommend re-evalutating your options. There are other things to do. But if you really want to go to law school, just get a job in a law firm or something and re-apply to legitamate schools next year.
