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.

| Cognitive Skills:
Knowledge and understanding
Upon completion of the course students should acquire the necessary competencies that will enable them to analyse to properly evaluate the international legal rules regulating the jurisdiction of states with respect to the sea and the uses of the sea. Students should also be able to solve problems related to the law of the sea by applying the relevant legal norms. The skills acquired upon completion of the course will enable the students to recognise and make use of international documents relevant for solving problems related to law of the sea issues (treaties, notably the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea; judicial and arbitral decisions, resolutions; etc.).Matching Assessments to Learning Outcomes:
The knowledge of the course subject is evaluated on the basis of an oral examination.
