The National Sea Grant Law Center’s mission is to encourage a well-informed constituency by providing legal information and analysis to the Sea Grant Community, policy-makers, and the general public through a variety of products and services.
Sea Grant is a partnership between the nation’s universities and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that began in 1966, when the U.S. Congress determined there was a unique opportunity to use university expertise to solve today’s marine environmental problems. By funding universities in coastal and Great Lakes states through “sea grants,” Congress created the National Sea Grant College Program which now works with 30 state programs to encourage the wise stewardship of our marine resources through research, education, outreach and technology transfer.
The National Sea Grant Law Center at the University of Mississippi School of Law is seeking applications for its Ocean and Coastal Law Fellowship Program. During the one-year fellowship, which may be extended for a maximum of two years, the Fellow will conduct legal research, write articles, and prepare white papers and other materials under the supervision and direction of the Law Center director.
The Fellow will also assist with the development of workshop/conference sessions, webinars, and other events hosted by the Law Center, and have the opportunity to travel to select workshops/conferences to present research findings. Candidates with experience and interest in ocean, coastal, and marine resources are preferred.
- A J.D. from law school accredited by the American Bar Association is required by starting date.
- Applications should also have strong law school academic records; relevant course and/or work experience and interest in one or more of the following – ocean/coastal, natural resources, environmental law; and demonstrated ability to conduct legal research and writing.
