Students from Ísafjörður and Akureyri now attending the same course in Law of the Sea

Classroom in Ísafjöður
Classroom in Ísafjöður
The instructor of this course is Peter Orebech, a professor of Law of the Sea at the University of Tromsö in Norway. Peter has become quite engaged on matters related to international affairs of Iceland, for example, mackerel fishing and even the Icesave dispute. In the current week the course will be focusing on fishing rights.


It will be exciting to see how this arrangement will turn out, as it is important to keep eyes open for opportunities in cooperation within the net of Icelandic universities.


The University Centre of the Westfjords welcomes their guests from Akureyri and hopes they will have a enjoyable stay here.
