Talk:Law of the sea
Law of the Sea is a body of international law that concerns the principals and rules by which public entities, especially states, interact in maritime matters, including navigational rights, sea mineral rights, and coastal waters jurisdiction. It is the public law counterpart to admiralty law, which concerns private maritime intercourse.
The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, concluded in 1982 and put into force in 1994, is generally accepted as a codification of customary international law of the sea. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gstamps85 (talk • contribs) 17:11, 13 October 2009 (UTC)Last modified on 13 October 2009, at 17:12
