The Marine Affairs Institute holds a major symposium every other year. These events draw national and international experts in their various fields to RWU Law. Students can attend these symposia for free. Past topics range from fisheries law, climate change and the legacy of the Deepwater Horizon disaster.
All applicants to the School of Law are considered for the Honors Program based upon their academic record and achievements, scores on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), and recommendations.
All incoming Honors students receive substantial merit scholarships of at least 60% off our tuition of $33,792. These scholarships renew each year provided students remain in the top third of the class.
The Honors Program enrolls approximately 20-30 students each year.
A separate application is not required.
