Recent Developments


Each year, as part of the San Diego Law Review's symposium on law of the sea, a student article is dedicated to a synopsis of recent events in the field. The function of such as article is to provide the reader with a broadly circumscribed report of recent developments presented under the topic headings of conservation, fishing, pollution, seabed resources, shipping and sovereignty. This year's compendium covers the period between January 1, 1973 and December 31, 1973. A myriad of sources are represented including the United States Code Congressional and Administrative News, the Environmental Reporter, International Legal Materials, the United Nations Chronicle, the Congressional Record and the New York Times.
