Marine and Coastal Law: Cases and Materials

Front Cover

This extensively updated and enhanced new edition of author Dennis Nixon's classic casebook provides advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and law students in courses in marine affairs and law with an essential grounding in the leading legal decisions and statutory provisions in U.S. marine and coastal law. Cases have been selected for their legal clarity, interesting factual background, doctrinal and precedential importance, and applicability to emerging areas of litigation, maritime affairs, and coastal management.

This rapidly evolving and contentious area of the law has seen a steady stream of landmark decisions and legislation in the years since the publication of the first edition of Marine and Coastal Law: Cases and Materials. The second edition is updated with 25 percent new post-1994 landmark case material and is enhanced with valuable new pedagogic features, including editorial commentary for all cases, examples to support study questions after each case, and chapter introductions. The enhancements benefit from the expertise of two new coauthors.
