NSGLC Presents!

NSGLC Webinar Series: This summer, the NSGLC hosted four student interns who conducted research on an array of topics, including flooding mitigation, coastal resilience, tribal water rights, fisheries, Rights of Nature, and lead in drinking water. Two of the students participated in collaborative programs: the Sea Grant Law Diversity Internship Program, in which the NSGLC has partnered with the Virginia Coastal Policy Center, and Sea Grant’s Community Engaged Internship. On July 21st, the students discussed their internship experiences and presented findings from their research projects.
