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.
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.
