RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN THE LAW OF THE SEA: A SYNOPSIS

As a part of its annual symposium on the law of the sea, the San Diego Law Review compiles a summary of significant recent developments in the field. This seventh annual synopsis reports major events which occurred between January 1, 1975, and December 31, 1975. Scope, format, and approach are substantially as employed in the past; a minor change is the extended use of footnotes, including citations to newspapers. The synopsis begins with a report on the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea, which held its third session at Geneva in the spring of 1975. Following this discussion, the developments are presented under these subject headings: Conservation, Fishing, Pollution and Pollution Control, Seabed Resources, Shipping, and Sovereignty. Information was primary derived from the Congressional Record, the Department of State Bulletin, the Environment Reporter, International Legal Materials, local newspapers, the New York Times, the United Nations Monthly Chronicle, U.S. Code Congressional and Administrative News, the Wall Street Journal, and the Weekly Law Digest.
