I came here with no background in law whatsoever but the school has done very well with providing a solid understanding of the basics in the first year. Don't get me wrong, there are some drawbacks to attending a T4 school such as RWU and given the current state of things in this country, it will probably be difficult to obtain a job after graduation but if you're determined enough and humble enough to put your ego on hold for a while, it will serve you in the long run.

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.
