The Rural Law Opportunities Program (RLOP) is a dynamic partnership between Wayne State College and the University of Nebraska College of Law designed to recruit students from rural areas and train them to become lawyers that will return and practice in their communities.
To be eligible for the RLOP program, you must be a resident of rural Nebraska.
“Nebraska Law is excited to partner with Wayne State with the Rural Law Opportunities Program. We think the program will expand opportunities for rural Nebraskans to receive a strong undergraduate and legal education. We also expect the RLOP will create a steady flow of lawyers returning to Greater Nebraska to help satisfy a growing demand for legal services in rural parts of the state.”
Dean Richard Moberly, Nebraska College of Law
“This is a wonderful opportunity for a young person who is interested in practicing law in a rural setting. They will visit the law school, meet practitioners, and learn about the court system. They will progress through the program with the other RLOP students as colleagues, similar to what they will experience in law school. This program will give them an edge by learning what to expect.”
