Roger Williams / Where are they now? (RWU Law Grads)
« on: September 11, 2005, 12:29:20 AM »
I thought it would be interesting to see where RWU School of Law grads were working... So I went to www.martindale.com and searched for lawyers who graduated from RWU Law...

Here are a few of the alums that came up in the search results:

Hinckley, Allen & Snyder (Providence) - http://www.haslaw.com/bio.asp?b=22

Morrison Mahoney (Providence) - http://www.morrisonmahoney.com/attorney.asp?attorney_id=276

Ellis & Boxer (Vermont) - http://www.ellisboxer.com/New%20Jenn..htm

Adler Pollack & Sheehan (Providence) - http://www.apslaw.com/attorneys.cfm?id=347

Roger Williams / Old stories...

Here's a couple of stories:
Both of those links point to articles that are several years old (one is from 2001 and the other from 2002).

Here is a more recent Providence Journal article from 2004:

Roger Williams / Grading system at RWU School of Law
« on: September 09, 2005, 10:10:48 PM »
Its hard wired into the system there that a large number of students CANT finish the first year.

I am currently a second year student at RWU School of Law.  I think some people might be confused about RWU's grading system, and therefore make it seem more daunting or scary than it actually is.

We have a mandatory mean for all 1st year required classes - the professor's average grade for the class must fall between a 2.33 (C+) and a 2.67 (B-). This is different than a mandatory curve, because with a curve teachers are forced to fail people, and in this case, professors don't have to have a certain number of A's and a certain number of F's... Professors must ensure the average grade for each of their classes falls between 2.33 and 2.67... 

Also, you must have at least a 1.90 GPA at the end of your 1st year in order to be asked back for your second year. That means you basically have to have at least a C average... 

If you're interested in reading more about this, you can click this link (or cut and paste in your browser), then scroll to the bottom of the page for Academic Standards -

Hi Amy. 

I am currently a 2L at RWU Law.  I have a scholarship and am part of the Honors Program (hence the scholarship)...  To my knowledge RWU only offers merit-based scholarships, nothing need-based...

We have a great financial aid office... They helped me get loans that I am using for my living expenses (so that I can devote my time to studying, instead of working or worrying too much about money).  Denise Rousseau is currently in charge of our financial aid office - her email is drousseau@rwu.edu - and I bet she could/would answer your questions.

Good luck!
