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 Alliance was created to serve the academic, professional, and extracurricular interests of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community, along with their friends and other individuals interested in legal issues concerning the LGBT community. The organization presents educational programs and speakers on sexual orientation and the law, develops contacts with local and national LGBT organizations, and works towards eradicating discrimination based on sexual orientation.
