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.
Student RI Association for Justice (SRIAJ)
The mission of the SRIAJ is to connect students with local trial attorneys and get them real world experiences and connections in the legal community from their first day at law school. As a member of the SRIAJ you will be assigned your own personal mentor, a Rhode Island trial attorney. Last year our members were invited to assist in their mentors’ offices, observe them at trial, and attend professional networking events. We are the student chapter of the RIAJ, a group composed of Rhode Island’s top trial attorneys. This association seeks to further opportunities for those law students who want a career in the courtroom and to build strong connections with the local legal community.
