Alumni support and vision are the hallmarks of any great institution of higher learning. The support and enthusiasm of RWU Law's more than  3,500 alumni are integral to shaping and realizing its goals and its future.

The Law Alumni Association (LAA) strives to bring value to your professional career and opportunities to engage with classmates and the law school community. Traditions, such as, the LAA Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament raises funds for the Law Alumni Association Scholarship Fund, with alumni, faculty, staff, and students in attendance. It's a great event for a great cause, but there are many ways to get involved and we encourage your participation and support.

As an RWU Law alum, the School of Law holds a very important place in your past -- and should also hold a place of importance in your present and future. If you are interested in further information regarding the Law Alumni Association or any of its committees, please contact the Office of Law Alumni Relations at (401) 254-4541 or e-mail
