Mark Nevitt, associate professor in the College of Law, wrote commentary for Just Security, “China, Climate Change, Credibility: Why It’s (Finally) Time for the US to Join the Law of the Sea Convention.”
Nevitt explained, “Indeed, the recent U.S. submarine deal with Australia highlights the importance of UNCLOS.
