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.
Regardless of a student’s enrollment in the RWU Student Health Insurance Plan or another plan, law students have the option of signing up for the optional Roger Williams University Health Services for an annual fee of $610, which entitles the student to services available at the Health Service Clinic, located on campus in the Center for Student Development. Health Services provides a variety of routine medical services including illness and injury visits, well-visits, vaccinations and laboratory services. The Health Services Fee does not cover all costs associated with office visits and additional fees will be incurred for lab work, x-rays, prescriptions and referrals. Therefore, a current insurance card must be on file at Health Services to facilitate direct insurance billing or bills for these services will be directed to the responsible party.
Student Health Service is open 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday. After hours, emergency care is provided through Newport Hospital, Rhode Island Hospital or Bristol County Medical Center.
Students who do not enroll in University Health Service may not access the University Health Services Clinic but may use their private insurance to seek care at area walk-in clinics or private physician’s offices.
