The University of Hawaii at Manoa William S. Richardson School of Law is a public law school located in the U.S. state of Hawaii in Honolulu. Named after its patriarch, former Hawaii State Supreme Court Chief Justice William S. Richardson, a zealous advocate of Hawaiian culture,[4] it is the state's only law school.[5]

Richardson's regime of legal studies places special emphasis on fields of law of particular importance to Hawaii and the surrounding Pacific and Asian region, including Native Hawaiian Law, Pacific-Asian Legal Studies, Environmental Law, and maritime law.[6]

A member of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS), the school is accredited by the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar Association (ABA).[7] It offers a Juris Doctor, with certificates available in Native Hawaiian Law, Pacific-Asian Legal Studies, and Environmental Law, with students able to matriculate either full-time or part-time. It also offers an Advanced Juris Doctor, for foreign students who have earned a law degree abroad, and a LLM.

For 2016, U.S. News & World Report ranked Richardson as 82nd among the nations law schools.[8] Richardson's part-time program was ranked 30th.[9]

William S. Richardson[edit]

The establishment of the Law School in 1973, was considered the achievement of ormer Hawaii State Supreme Court Chief Justice, William S. Richardson, .[5]. For many years, he had pressed the Hawaii State Legislature for its creation, arguing that the state would benefit by providing a legal education for its residents that enveloped its cultural customs—because they had the greatest stake in constructing the state's legal traditions going forward as such, at his retirement, the Law School was named in his honor.

Ethos[edit]

Kānāwai Māmalahoe, on a plaque under the Kamehameha Statues.

The spirit of Richardson's culture as a community devoted to the study of law is manifested in Kānāwai Māmalahoe, the fundamental precept of Hawaiian law.

Originating in a royal edict by King Kamehameha I in 1797, galvanizing the Kingdom of Hawai'i’s legal system, Kānāwai Māmalahoe, or Law of the Splintered Paddle, was enshrined later in the Hawaii State Constitution, Article 9, Section 10.[10]

According to Hawaiian legend, Kānāwai Māmalahoe was declared by King Kamehameha after an incident where he chased two fishermen who were fishing illegally, when he caught his leg in the reef, and one of the fisherman, Kaleleiki, hit him mightily on the head with a paddle in defense, which broke into pieces. Luckily, Kamehameha was able to escape. Years later, Kamehameha held, when the same fisherman was brought before him to account for the incident, that in the interest of justice he should be released, as he had only been searching for food for his family.[10]

Reflecting Kānāwai Māmalahoe, the school maintains a “commitment . . . to a collaborative community that is deeply committed to the . . . pursuit of social and economic justice” for all.[11] Reflecting this commitment, its unofficial logo is Kaleleiki, the fisherman.
