Summary
Oceans are essential for maintaining life on earth. Their resources are increasingly important to the world economy; 90% of international trade is seaborne. The current regime for the oceans is built on the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of 1982 (LOSC). This framework convention divides the oceans in coastal state maritime zones and international areas. In all these areas the legal regime seeks to maintain a balance between the rights, interests and obligations of individual states and the international community’s interests. In this course, an intro is provided to the law that regulates the oceans.
