The National Sea Grant Law Center

Advisory Committee

  • The National Sea Grant Law Center’s Advisory Committee provides valuable guidance in identifying research and outreach priorities, as well as strategic partnerships and initiatives. The The National Sea Grant Law Center was established to provide legal research, education, and outreach services to the entire Sea Grant network. To ensure the Law Center is fulfilling its mission, Advisory Committee members are drawn from the various Sea Grant networks, including both position-based (e.g., SGA, Assembly, Research Coordinators) and thematic (e.g., climate, fisheries). Representatives are also invited from key partner organizations.
