Ocean & Coastal Law

Law on Land and Sea

The legal landscape is fluid. Never has there been a more important time in our society for attorneys who know and understand the complex laws governing ocean resources activities and for coastal zone management, here and abroad. 

Oregon Law’s Ocean and Coastal Law Center gives you the opportunity to research and analyze current ocean and coastal law topics and to publish the results in books, law journals and on the Center’s web site. 

In addition to your other Oregon Law course work, completion of the Ocean and Coastal Law Center curriculum will prepare you to enter the highly competitive ocean and coastal law legal practice as an attorney with governmental agencies, law firms, and businesses who's lively-hood is dependent on the sea.
