Roger Williams Law School, although accredited by the ABA, is a poor quality institution with an unprofessional staff and less than qualified faculty. The primary purpose of this institution is financial and not to educate future lawyers: once you are a student here, they provide very little cooperation and assistance to you.

Speaking to past students, their experiences are on the whole incredibly negative. Professors seem unqualified to teach, school policies are convoluted and not evenly upheld, minority students are treated unfairly and are at times discriminated against, and dealing with the registrar's office is a nightmare.

Students also encounter an unusual number of suicides in first year classes because of the school's aggressive 'weed out' strategy to increase its ranking and recover scholarship funds. Also many female students have stated that a few of their professors have made advances on them while they were enrolled in their classes. There are also numerous other problems with the school regarding their claims versus the actuality of the school.

Please do your research before you consider attending this school.

I disagree with the above comments. First of all, it is apparent that the author did not attend RWU Law and is therefore unqualified to pass judgment. I graduated from RWU Law in 2006 and feel that I received an excellent legal education. Most of my professors were Yale and Harvard educated and were highly qualified to teach. Also, I did not hear of any suicides during my first year, although the grading curve was admittedly a nightmare. Upon graduation, I secured a job in NYC with a mid-size firm and I am currently still with this firm. As with most schools, it is what you make of it.
