The global oceans are in many regards in authentic crisis today. Consequently ocean law and policy issues have become central to both the international law and environmental law fields.This course provides an opportunity for the student to obtain an overview of the law of the sea in all its aspects. Weekly class discussions will center of special topics such as sustainability in resources management, diplomatic confrontations such as the dangerous present-day conflicts in the South China Sea, seabed drill and mining, biodiversity issues, responses to piracy, and the threat of nuclear damage to coastal and ocean environments.
The heart of the course will be the individual research paper, on an approved topic relating to oceans governance. The paper may serve for the Writing Requirement and also for various certificate requirements. We will also have occasional class talks by visiting experts from govt and practice.
