Legal regimes of different parts of the sea, the seabed and its subsoil: internal waters; territorial sea; archipelagic waters; contiguous zone; exclusive economic zone; continental shelf; highs seas; International Seabed Area; delimitation of maritime areas; specific and unresolved issues (Arctic, Antarctic, enclosed and semi-enclosed seas).
Exploration, exploitation and uses of the sea: navigation (in different maritime zones, straits and canals); fisheries (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, regional agreements, Adriatic Sea); mineral resource exploitation in the seabed (in maritime areas within national jurisdiction, deep seabed mining according to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea); marine scientific research; development and transfer of marine technology; status of land-locked and geographically disadvantaged states.
Protection and preservation of the marine environment: general law (basic principles, sources of pollution, adoption and enforcement of national and international rules); protection of regional seas (especially the Barcelona Convention on the Protection of the Mediterranean with additional protocols); protection of the Adriatic Sea.
Peace-time military activities at sea: the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and peace-time military activities; treaty-based limitations on military activities at sea.
Dispute settlement in the field of the international law of the sea: general international law; Geneva Conventions, 1958; regional arrangements; dispute settlement mechanism of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.
