RWU Law offers a joint JD and master’s degree in marine affairs with the University of Rhode Island. Only 3 law schools in the U.S. offer such a joint degree.
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.
