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.
The Honors Roundtable series provides a small collegial setting where discussions take place between Honors Program students and professors or members of the Rhode Island Bar and Judiciary. Roundtable facilitators choose topics of interest which can include their latest publication, cases pending before the United States Supreme Court, or legal issues in popular culture.
Roundtables are limited to 17 students and are open to all Honors Program students. They are a terrific opportunity for students discuss different topics with practitioners who they otherwise may not have the opportunity to meet.
