Australia and the Law of the Sea
As an island continent, it is unsurprising that a focus of successive Australian governments has been the international law of the sea. Australia has been active, both in the negotiation of new rules such as those in the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea ('LOSC')1 and in adopting laws and practices contributing to the development of customary international law. These developments in the law have accorded Australia significant benefits- for example, an area of maritime jurisdiction that is among the largest of any country.
