About us

The Yeosu Academy of the Law of the Sea provides education and training on ocean law and maritime affairs for emerging thought leaders from developing nations to better address maritime challenges.

The global pandemic of COVID-19 has changed the way we meet and gather across the globe. Amid these circumstances, the Eighth Session of Yeosu Academy will be conducted globally through virtual sessions from 6 to 15 December 2021.

The Eighth Session of Yeosu Academy features 16 live lectures and more than 50 pre-recorded lectures by the world’s leading experts in the law of the sea, which will offer participants flexibility in study at their own interests. Successful participants earn a professional certificate and receive preferential consideration for an invitation to a follow-on advanced academic program planned for Korea in 2022, travel and other circumstances permitting.
