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.
Institutes and Programs
Our Feinstein Center for Pro Bono & Experiential Education was recognized by National Jurist magazine as one of the two strongest public interest law programs in the Northeast, while our Marine Affairs Institute is one of only a few programs in the country offering a concentration in this increasingly vital field of law. Meanwhile our excellent clinical programs offer unparalleled opportunities to move from theory to practice, helping actual clients solve their legal dilemmas.
