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.

It will also examine the theory and effect of the principles of limitation, and particularly the Limitation of Liability Act of 1854.
