Ocean & Coastal Law
The areas in which oceans and their branches and land masses meet are the source of many relationships largely peculiar to those areas. Coastal protection, wetlands, environment and ecological issues, the position of the area in terms of industry and commerce including such international rules as those governing fisheries, whaling and other trapping and hunting, are a part of the special problems facing this zone and the areas of water and land nearby. The course examines the various legal regimes with a consideration of policy issues that are involved in the complex relationships generated in these areas.
