Every \n year\, derelict fishing gear\, plastic bottles\, plastic bags\, cigarettes\, \n abandoned vessels\, and other debris washes ashore in New England. This debris \n causes negative social\, environmental\, and economic impacts\, such as \n decreased aesthetic value\, harm to coastal ecosystem health\, and damage to \n vessels and gear. These challenges create complex management problems for \n coastal managers and attorneys\, who work to mitigate the creation of new \n debris and remove and manage debris that washes ashore.  \n \n This Symposium will discuss the adequacy of U.S. law and policy to prevent \n the creation of new marine debris and to remove debris once it is created. \n The first session will include keynote presentations on the science\, law\, and \n policy of marine debris. Speakers will then examine case studies from coastal \n New England states to consider how each state identified a marine debris \n problem\, took steps to address it\, and how the approach could serve as a \n model elsewhere. Finally\, a panel of attorneys will lead a facilitated \n discussion to identify effective legal and policy strategies to prevent and \n manage marine debris in New England and to frame questions for future \n research.   \n \n  \n \n *FINAL AGENDA [1]*\n \n *SPEAKER BIOGRAPHIES [2]*\n \n          \n \n *REGISTRATION FOR THE PUBLIC* [3]* *\n \n \n *FACULTY/STUDENT REGISTRATION* [4]  * **\n *\n \n \n A Symposium dinner will be held on Thursday\, November 3 at the Law School.  \n A reception will begin at 5:30 PM with dinner to follow at 6:00 PM.  Dinner \n tickets are $50 a person\; student cost is $25 a person.  Registration for \n the dinner is included in the "Registration to the Public" link above.\n \n Refunds for the Symposium or Symposium Dinner will be accepted in writing to \n lawevents@rwu.edu [5] on or before Friday\, October 28\, 2016.\n \n \n *CLE Credits*\n This program has been approved for six (6) Rhode Island MCLE credits with \n zero legal ethics credits.\n \n *Directions\n * [6]Signs for "Law School Event" will direct you to parking.\n GPS Address:  10 Metacom Avenue\, Bristol\, RI \n \n  \n \n Planning Committee:\n *Michelle Carnevale*\, /Program Associate\, 11th Hour Racing/\n *Terra Bowling*\, /Senior Research Counsel\, National Sea Grant Law Center\n /*Casey Charkowick\, Esq. *'16\, /Staff Attorney\, Textron\, Inc.\n /*Monica Allard Cox*\, /Communications Director\, Rhode Island Sea Grant\n /*Michael Daly\, Esq.*\, /Partner\, Pierce Atwood\n /*Dennis H.

The premise is a civil \n suit: A South Side African-American woman sues a Jewish North Shore real \n estate developer for defamation. The legal issue is whether or not she was \n falsely accused of stealing his watch and was caused financial \n harm. DEFAMATION explores the highly charged issues of race\, religion\, \n gender\, class\, and the law with a twist: the audience is the jury. Through \n deliberations and post-show discussions\, audiences engage in civil discourse \n that challenges pre-conceived notions. After the trial\, the audience engages \n in a 15-minute deliberation led by the judge. The judge polls the audience \n twice - before the deliberation begins and at its end. The final vote ‘for \n the plaintiff’ or ‘for the defendant’ decides the outcome of the trial.\n \n  For more information about DEFAMATION – THE PLAY\, click here [1].\n \n  RSVP to the Office of Programs & Events | lawevents@rwu.edu [2]\n \n  /Presented by the Office of Diversity & Outreach\, School of Law/\n \n / Co-Sponsored by the President's Council on Inclusive Excellence through an \n Inclusive Excellence Mini-Grant/\n \n  \n \n \n [1] http://www.defamationtheplay.com/\n [2] mailto:lawevents@rwu.edu END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT UID:calendar.11921.field_date.0.4 SUMMARY:Providence Law School Fair DTSTAMP:20171119T075743Z DTSTART:20161110T180000Z DTEND:20161110T200000Z URL;VALUE=URI:http://law.rwu.edu/PVDlawfair2016 LOCATION:The New RWU Law Experiential Education Campus\, One Empire Plaza\, 4th Floor\, \n Providence\, RI 02903 DESCRIPTION: \n \n Representatives from  law schools across the country will be in downtown \n Providence on November 10th to meet with potential applicants.  This is your \n chance to meet with decision makers at regional and national law schools and \n to learn more about their unique programs.\n \n  \n \n *Details and Registration* [1]\n \n \n [1] http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07ecz3shdp7a3912bb&\;llr=nvxkdjcab END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT UID:calendar.12046.field_date.0.5 SUMMARY:Civil Rights Housing Discrimination – Fair Housing Testing Seminar DTSTAMP:20171119T075743Z DTSTART:20161117T213000Z DTEND:20161117T233000Z URL;VALUE=URI:http://law.rwu.edu/event/civil-rights-housing-discrimination-%E2%80%93-fair-housing-testing-seminar LOCATION:Bay View Room - RWU Law Bristol Campus DESCRIPTION:Fair housing testing is a strategy used to determine whether or not people \n looking for housing are being treated differently based on their membership \n in a protected class.  Join us on November 17\, to learn about fair housing \n testing and how you can get involved.\n \n Admission is free\, but seating is limited.  Please RSVP to: \n https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSereApxY-wj7WxGJqvVQabswfvqoQYszDFzWSYDZTc2oGOuag/viewform \n [1].\n \n /Presented by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)\, the \n State of Rhode Island Commission for Human Rights\, South Coast Fair Housing & \n The Fair Housing Justice Center of New York./\n \n \n [1] https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSereApxY-wj7WxGJqvVQabswfvqoQYszDFzWSYDZTc2oGOuag/viewform END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT UID:calendar.12021.field_date.0.6 SUMMARY:Info Session for Prospective Students DTSTAMP:20171119T075743Z DTSTART:20161121T133000Z DTEND:20161121T170000Z URL;VALUE=URI:http://law.rwu.edu/event/info-session-prospective-students-26 LOCATION:RWU Law\, 10 Metacom Avenue\, Bristol\, RI 02809 DESCRIPTION:We invite you to visit Roger Williams University School of Law (Bristol--Main \n Campus) at our November 21st Info Session!  Come learn about our Affordable \n Excellence Initiative [1] and Clinical Guarantee [2].  You will have the \n opportunity to attend a real first year Criminal Law class taught by \n Professor Emily Sack [3]\, meet with an admissions representative\, and take a \n tour of the law school.\n \n To register for the Info Session\, please RSVP [4] here.  If you have any \n questions\, please contact the Office of Admissions at (401) 254-4555 or \n admissions@rwu.edu.  We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful\, \n seaside Bristol campus soon!\n \n \n [1] http://law.rwu.edu/node/8051\n [2] http://law.rwu.edu/node/8026\n [3] http://law.rwu.edu/emily-j-sack\n [4] http://law.rwu.edu/node/10221 END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
