    The Emerging Arctic Market: New Trends, Key Players, and Why It Matters to Everyone South of the North Pole

    2 PM EDT

    Arctic sea ice is thawing at an unprecedented rate, creating economic opportunities that are quietly being exploited by state actors. New sources for hydrocarbons, minerals, and fishing are materializing amidst the melting ice, as are shipping lanes that would expand access to markets in Europe, North America, and Asia. While these new opportunities draw increased human activity, gray areas in the law present a growing challenge, as disputes over territorial claims and resource rights loom large. Join our panel as we explore this new market, the key players involved, and the legal challenges ahead.

    This is a non-CLE program.
