Each year, the Marine Affairs Institute takes RWU Law students on an educational cruise on Narragansett Bay. This trip helps first year students better understand many of the marine and maritime issues affecting Rhode Island and New England.
Roger Williams University School of Law emphasizes student dignity, quality, diversity, retention and success.
The Academic Success Program’s objectives include helping law students discover their particular needs and learning styles, equipping them with the academic tools they need to meet the challenges of law school with self-assurance, encouraging them to monitor their own progress as they adjust their study practices to achieve their personal goals.
Those goals usually include:
- Developing a deep, rich, comprehensive understanding of the law, and
- Earning grades which demonstrate the student is working at his or her personal best level, and
- Passing the bar exam the first time around, and
- Becoming the kind of lawyer you would want to represent you.
The Academic Success Program teaches students to begin practicing – in law school – how to be that kind of lawyer.
