Each year, the Marine Affairs Institute takes RWU Law students on an educational cruise on Narragansett Bay. This trip helps first year students better understand many of the marine and maritime issues affecting Rhode Island and New England.
Moot Court Board
The RWU Moot Court Board unites the law school’s finest appellate advocates through the intra-school Clark Competition held over several weeks each fall. All second-year day and transfer students are invited to compete. The two highest scoring individuals have the privilege of arguing before the Rhode Island Supreme Court. Membership on the Moot Court Board offers students an opportunity to hone their written and oral advocacy skills; but most importantly, board members have the honor of representing our law school in national and regional competitions. Through Moot Court many student have found their voice and direction in the practice of law. Members have participated in a wide-ranging array of competitions, including the Regent University Competition, the National Moot Court Competition and the Phillip C. Jessup Competition (international law specific). This experience provides students not only the benefit of peer and professor interaction, but further exposes students to networking with other schools and legal institutions.
