9th Marine Law Symposium

7:30 am - 5:00 pm  |  Law School

SHIFTING SEAS:  The Law’s Response to Changing Ocean Conditions

November 14 & 15, 2012
Roger Williams University School of Law

This Symposium will examine the laws and policies that are implicated as climate change impacts coastal and ocean environments. The land-sea boundary is shifting, ocean water is warmer and more acidic, fluctuating weather conditions and storms increasingly impact coastal communities, and the melting Arctic ice cap raises new international boundary and resource exploitation issues. These changes trigger many corresponding legal considerations for natural resource managers, planners, attorneys, insurers and law enforcement entities.  At this Symposium, experts and legal practitioners from governmental bodies as well as private industry, academia and non-profit organizations will explore the state of the law, how disputes have been handled to date, and what may be on the horizon. Attendees can expect to walk away with the law and policy tools necessary to engage in these rapidly changing issues, and an understanding of the natural and social science behind changing coastal and ocean conditions.

More information is available at Marine Law Symposium, by calling 401-254-5392 or by email to marineaffairs@rwu.edu.
