Ocean & Coastal Law Journal

The Ocean and Coastal Law Journal (OCLJ) is dedicated to facilitating discourse on legal issues related to domestic and international use of the sea and seashores. One of the few Journals of its kind in the country, OCLJ is published by second and third year students at the University of Maine School of Law in two volumes per year. These volumes include articles by practitioners and scholars, as well as comments and case notes written by students addressing issues of marine resource regulation, alternative energy development, boundary delimitation, coastal zone management, marine environmental protection, and other topics of importance in the field of ocean and coastal law. OCLJ also publishes reviews of recently released books addressing legal issues related to the ocean and coast. The OCLJ is affiliated with the Center for Oceans & Coastal Law at Maine Law.

The OCLJ provides two years of research, writing, and editing experience to its student editors, who are required to produce a comment or two case notes of publishable quality on an ocean or coastal issue during their second year. In addition to fulfilling their writing requirement, student editors become familiar with current issues in the field of ocean and coastal law while carefully editing works accepted for publication.
