The Georgia Sea Grant Law Program is a partnership between Marine Extension-Georgia Sea Grant and the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia. In providing objective analysis for coastal decision makers, the Georgia Sea Grant Law Program supports informed and effective management of coastal resources to improve hazard resilience, encourage sustainable development, and promote healthy coastal ecosystems. The Georgia Sea Grant Law Program works with scientists, local and state government leaders, extension agents and business owners to integrate the latest science with legal and policy analysis to improve hazard resilience, encourage sustainable development and promote healthy ecosystems throughout coastal Georgia. Students conduct research, analyze coastal issues, and develop educational and outreach materials.

The program provides opportunities to: participate in an area of work that integrates law, policy, science, and economics in a collaborative, problem-solving framework; present at conferences; co-author articles; work on projects supported by state agencies and local governments; and inform projects that further Georgia Sea Grant's mission.
