Rhode Island Lawyers for the Public Interest

RWULaw Center for Justice Fellowship

The RWULaw Center for Justice Fellowship program employs recent graduates of Roger Williams University School of Law as staff attorneys for a two-year fellowship period.


Fellows will work closely with the Center’s Executive Director and other licensed attorneys in all facets of the Center’s programmatic delivery. Fellows are selected based on their interest in social and economic justice, commitment to social change through the tools of the law, and readiness to work in a collaborative and energetic atmosphere. Fellows are a critical element of the core legal work of the Center, engaging in both direct representation and strategic litigation.


The Center defines “recent law school graduate” as someone who has graduated within the last five years. For the next cohort, this includes students from the Roger Williams University School of Law classes of 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, or 2017.
