MARITIME LAW


Maritime or admiralty law is a body of law dealing with issues that arise over disputes that occur on bodies of water and has both, domestic and international components. Maritime matters cover a large number of areas ranging from transportation, trade, environmental issues, territorial rights, national security, and jurisdiction to name a few.

With 70% of the earth’s surface covered by water and over 200 thousand miles of coastline, AUWCL has partnered with schools that have well-established maritime law programs to provide students with unique opportunities. Students learn from experts in the field and have access to experiential learning opportunities that allow students to develop practical skills as well.
