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.
Native American Law Students Association (NALSA)
The Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) supports the academic and social interests of Native American students and others interested in indigenous legal and cultural issues. NALSA promotes awareness of Native American issues, viewpoints and culture through its meetings, activities, and local educational and social events, such as annual PowWows and guest lecturers throughout the region. The Roger Williams School of Law chapter of NALSA is networked to the extensive resources of the national NALSA and the Federal Indian Bar – both of which host annual conferences throughout the country.
