The Utrecht Centre for Water, Oceans and Sustainability Law (UCWOSL) of Utrecht University does research in the area of water law, oceans law, environmental law, climate law and sustainability law.

Its leading position in the area of water and oceans law and policy is partly due to international collaboration and a keen eye for the application of scientific insights into practice. Members of the research group advise international organisations, the European Commission and various Dutch and other governmental and private institutions and participate in various international consortia.
