AHOY promotes discussion of issues relating to admiralty law to inspire greater interest in this unique topic. With its own jurisprudence, admiralty law has developed separately from traditional land-related laws. Examining its development and evolution affords one a much greater understanding of international law and cooperation among nations, as well as an appreciation for alternative approaches to lawmaking.
Much like admiralty is a bit different, AHOY strives to offer the unexpected. From using the fountain outside the law school, to hosting events literally on Lake Michigan, AHOY promises to engage students, faculty, and practitioners.
