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.
Law Students have the option of signing up for the Roger Williams University Health Services, which entitles the student to services available at the Health Service Clinic, located on campus in the Center for Student Development. When enrolled in Health Service, there is no charge for illness or injury visits. Charges will be incurred for routine well physical exams, immunizations, lab work and prescription medication. Lab and prescription charges can be submitted to your selected health insurance.
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.
