LAW350  A  MARINE ECOLOGY & LAW SEMINAR

Course Description
This two credit course is intended to introduce students to the legal concepts of marine environmental law and protection and how it relates to the field of maritime law in this rapidly evolving area. The course will be taught by a practicing maritime attorney and will employ a case study approach. The course will examine current U.S., Florida and, to a lesser degree, international marine environmental law and address such practical concerns as prosecuting and defending pollution or accident claims and liability for environmental damage, pollution and clean-up costs. Concepts in diverse bodies of law: maritime, tort, criminal, insurance, international and administrative, will be presented and discussed when relevant to particular marine environmental issues. This course is appropriate for both 2L and 3L and graduate students (LL.M.) with an interest in environmental or maritime law.
