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.
The Roger Williams University School of Law Student Handbook is a compilation of documents relevant to the student's career at the law school. It consists of two basic documents which relate to all academic matters, the Academic Code and the Code of Conduct. In addition to these documents it also contains important School of Law and University policies. The materials in the Student Handbook will be supplemented from time to time on-line in order to improve it, provide more complete coverage, and keep it current.
