North Carolina Coastal Resources, Law, Planning and Policy Center
The North Carolina Coastal Resources Law, Planning and Policy Center is a partnership of the North Carolina Sea Grant, the UNC School of Law and UNC Department of City and Regional Planning. The Center conducts research, education and public service projects that analyze legal issues affecting the use, conservation and management of ocean and coastal resources in North Carolina. It provides informational support to state agencies, state advisory groups, local governments, the legal community and community organizations in their efforts to address ocean, coastal and development issues.
In addition, the Center engages in long-term coastal use and development trends and issues. These results are communicated through white papers, as well as through the semiannual publication of Legal Tides, a newsletter that reaches more than 1,400 attorneys, state agency and local government personnel, and community organizations.
The Center also sponsors conferences and other educational programs in its efforts to extend pertinent information to coastal management professionals, community organizations and others with an interest in coastal issues.
