The United States and the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea

Republican and Democratic Presidents, the U.S. military, leaders of industry, and environmentalists have pushed for U.S. acceptance of the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention. Yet the United States remains a non-party.

Please join us as we welcome Professor John Noyes of the California Western School of Law as he explores the current legal position of the United States with respect to Law of the Sea Convention provisions and discusses historical trends that help explain why U.S. acceptance of the Convention remains controversial.
