A Message From Our President - William Trezvant

As President of the Thurgood Marshall Law Society, I wish to welcome you to our website. Our mandate is to advance the active participation of judges, law professors and law students of color in the science of jurisprudence. Our mission is to uphold the honor of the legal profession, promote social interaction with Rhode Island and Federal bars; and to promote the civil and political rights of all citizens of the State of Rhode Island. To accomplish these goals the Thurgood Marshall Law Society has a number of activities scheduled through out the coming year. Those activities are posted in the event section of our website.
