The NSGLC heads the Sea Grant Legal Network, which is comprised of several different legal programs associated with various Sea Grant state programs. In 2018, the NSGLC put out a call for small grant proposals to initiate legal program startup efforts at Sea Grant programs currently lacking legal education capacity. MDSG was awarded one of these grants, which was used to collaborate with the Agriculture Law Education Initiative (ALEI) in funding this workshop and other efforts.
