Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Legal Program

The Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Legal Program at The University of Mississippi School of Law has conducted legal research, education, and outreach since 1972 as the legal research arm of the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium.

The Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium (MASGC), created in 1972, is one of 34 Sea Grant programs. Consortium members include Auburn University, Dauphin Island Sea Lab, Jackson State University, Mississippi State University, The University of Alabama, The University of Alabama at Birmingham, The University of Mississippi, The University of Southern Mississippi and the University of South Alabama.
