The seas and the oceans represent a resource of growing importance in various crucial areas of State action, including transports, fisheries, energy production. More and more pressing is, in addition, the furtherance of related general interests such as safety of navigation and marine environmental protection. The subject, taught in English, offers the possibility to focus on these topics in the double perspective of international and European Union law.
The course consists of 36 hours of lectures given by the course holder.

During the lecturing period some real cases decided by the International Court of Justice, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, the Court of Justice of the European Union and international arbitral tribunals will also be examined with a view to conduct focussed discussions to which students will be required to actively participate. Teaching materials will be made available on the University portal www.aulaweb.unige.it. For a better organisation of the teaching activities students are required to register on the website as soon as possible. In order to facilitate the discussion, the calendar of the lectures will be published in advance and all relevant documents will be uploaded on the University portal.
Aim of the course is to equip students with fundamental notions of the law of the sea with particular regard to the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, other international law instruments relating to specific issues and problems and the pertinent case law of the International Court of Justice, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea and other judicial organs.
