This course offers an overview of the international law of the sea and current challenges facing the world's oceans and seas. Bringing together a distinguished cohort of law of the sea scholars, the course is designed to provide participants with a working knowledge of the relevant legal and regulatory framework, enhance and broaden their understanding on a wide spectrum of law of the sea topics such as deep seabed mining, maritime migration and unregulated fishing.
By the end of this course participants will develop a solid grounding in the international legal framework for governance of the world's oceans, the main sources of the law of the sea, including treaties and custom and how these elements are put to the test in different contexts, from protecting the environment, to regulating deep sea mining and dispute settlement.
Indicative Topics Include:
- Law of the Sea in Perspective: Key Concepts and Principles
- Maritime Zones and Maritime Boundary Delimitation
- Maritime Search and Rescue of Migrants and Refugees
- Rising Sea Levels and Ocean Governance
- Governance of Fisheries and Implications of Brexit
- Dispute Settlement in the Law of the Sea and the Role of ITLOS
The virtual course format will consist of a series of sessions in which live (synchronous) teaching is offered via Zoom. Participants will be able to interact with the tutors and amongst themselves on screen.

The course would be beneficial for students, law academics and practitioners and non-lawyers with interest in modern ocean governance.
