The Sea Grant Law and Policy Journal is an Open Access online journal that provides a forum for the timely discussion and exploration of legal topics of relevance to the Sea Grant network of extension agents, researchers, coastal managers and users, and local decision-makers. The Journal features concise, 30 – 35 page, articles on a range of subjects including fisheries, coastal development, coastal access, and pollution. Unlike traditional law reviews, the Journal highlights more applied research and case studies. Due to their timeliness and brevity, Sea Grant Law and Policy Journal articles should be of interest to anyone involved in coastal management, lawyer and non-lawyer alike. A guide to assist writers in preparing information for publication in the Sea Grant Law and Policy Journal can be found here.
Each spring, the National Sea Grant Law Center sponsors a symposium and invite papers from academics and practitioners for publication in June. The fall issue, published in December, features law student articles submitted in response to a yearly request for papers. The Journal’s editorial board and outside experts, as needed, review all articles prior to publication.
Stephanie Showalter, Director of the National Sea Grant Law Center and an adjunct faculty member of the University of Mississippi School of Law, serves as the Journal’s editor.
