Our Pro Bono Collaborative mobilizes Rhode Island law firms, law students and community organizations to provide desperately needed legal assistance for the underserved residents of the state. The unique program includes 10 major law firms, over 20 community-based organizations and several dozen law students.
Sports & Entertainment Law Society
Sport and Entertainment Law Society (SPENT) is an organization for students with an interest in Sport or Entertainment Law. Our goals include keeping members up-to-date with current sport and entertainment industry happenings, meeting and learning from industry professionals, and sharing a common interest with other RWUSOL students.
SPENT hosts Student/Faculty Jeopardy as well as an annual Halloween party. In addition, expect SPENT to host speakers and events related to the sport or entertainment industry. For example, SPENT hosted a Yankees-Red Sox rivalry event in April 2009. Learning about the industry and keeping up with industry happenings are all a part of SPENT.
If you have an interest in sports or entertainment and how the law might play into these thriving industries, then SPENT is for you!
