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]

Likely reflecting its importance to Hawaii and embracing the state's unique social and cultural values, Richardson's mission is to be "a collaborative, multicultural community preparing students for excellence in the practice of law and related careers that advance justice and the rule of law."[6] To this end, 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.[7]

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).[8] 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 a LLM.

In 2014, U.S. News & World Report ranked Richardson amongst the nation's top law schools at 100th.[3] Richardson's part-time program was ranked 26th.[3] Notably, Richardson is the smallest law school ranked in the top tier.

William S. Richardson[edit]

Main article: William S. Richardson

A former Hawaii State Supreme Court Chief Justice, William S. Richardson, the school's patriarch, was known for his fierce advocacy of Hawaiian culture, departing from western legal tradition to shape the state's emerging canon of law to reflect its own unique customs via numerous landmark decisions.[5]

The establishment of the Law School in 1973, was widely considered Richardson's crowning career achievement. 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]

Main article: Kānāwai Māmalahoe
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.[9]

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.[9]

Reflecting Kānāwai Māmalahoe, Richardson’s maintains a “commitment . . . to a collaborative community that is deeply committed to the . . . pursuit of social and economic justice” for all.[6] Reflecting this commitment, Richardson's unofficial logo is Kaleleiki, the fisherman.
