Centers and Projects
The Law Center provides legal research, education and outreach to the Sea Grant Program and its partners. The National Sea Grant Law Center was founded to disseminate information about marine laws and policies, coordinate ocean and coastal law researchers, and provide the National Sea Grant College Program and its constituents a source of critical analysis of marine laws and policies. Center attorneys actively research current issues in the ocean and coastal law field, providing research on marine laws, regulations, policies and caselaw from all regions of the United States. These resources are available to the Sea Grant College Program, NOAA and other federal agencies, state legislatures and agencies, as well as individuals working in the field of ocean and coastal management and policy. Several publications and published research results are available on the Center’s website. Learn more by visiting the Law Center.
