Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to examine what legal authority exists under which the Federal government could provide for the security and defense of structures built off the coasts of the United States for economic purposes. The legal jurisdiction of the U.S. is examined in terms of regulation, criminal law enforcement, and defense. Potential changes in U.S. authority resulting from the U.N. Law of the Sea Conference are also briefly discussed. Author
