Laws did not play during his freshman year due to injury. In 2004, he played in all of the Irish's twelve games, registering 17 tackles and one sack. The 2004 season saw him moving to the starting roster. He started all twelve games, mading 33 tackles and 1.5 sacks; he also blocked two field goal attempts. In 2006, he started all of Notre Dame's 13 games, accounting for 62 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one blocked FG attempt. He pled sometimes at the defensive end position during his senior season, starting all twelve games and mading 112 tackles and four sacks. He is an experienced three year started who has faced some of the toughest competition in college football. Laws is very productive; he gets off quick off the ball. He is a good athlete with good speed for the position (5.00-40), who is agile and can change direction quickly. He moves well through traffic and is very smart, adjusting to any defensive scheme. However, he is on the short side and could add bulk, because he can be overpowered. He also needs to improve on using his hands better. He is also not an instinctive pass rusher. Laws is undersized for the DT position and is not instinctive or fast enough to play defensive end in the NFL. The tweener label will scare teams and he does not have a very high development ceiling. Laws will probably be drafted in the mid rounds because of his intense desire to compete and his college production.
