Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Legal Program

Environmental Literacy
& Workforce Development

We hire law student interns interested in fisheries and the coastal environment, and our research helps explain the legal issues affecting Alabama and Mississippi coastal communities.

Healthy Coastal

We examine laws and regulations for outreach addressing invasive species, living shorelines, habitat restoration, and marine debris.

Resilient Communities
and Economies

We help communities with legal research and outreach on issues such as FEMA’s Community Rating System, green stormwater infrastructure, coastal resilience, and emergency response.
