Mis-education at Roger Williams

Postby SteveM. » Thu Apr 08, 2010 6:55 pm

The Roger Williams Law Scool is the worst nightmare of the law school movement. It's a school in name only, having failed to meet even routine ABA requirements for a solid curriculum, clear academic standards and a long-term plan. Flawed leadership helped destroy Roger Williams. They shouldn't be allowed to gamble with the future of students the way officials here have gambled.

Though many law schools have problems, Roger Williams's are more glaring because of its refusal to follow most professional rules and because of the poor quality of its leadership. The idea behind law school is to educate students in the law. Roger Williams is a mockery of that premise. Students are encouraging Roger Williams to return their funds so that a quality and professional legal program can be purchased elsewhere.

Non-ABA accredited schools aren't always ideal, but they are a marked improvement over the miseducation the students are receiving at Roger Williams.

Yeah, and considering that giddy applicants are apparently not heeding all of the evidence that many students at the T10 schools are feeling duped and abandoned ITE, a story about disillusionment among students at a much lower-ranked school isn't going to have any impact.

This is my favorite. A little condescending and snobbish, but there is some truth in it regarding TTTTs.

I surmise that the individual who created that piece was writing an auto-biography of his law school experience.
