Mary Beth Reissen, MS Tch Chem’70, represented the American Society of International Law at the 14th meeting of the Open-Ended Informal Consultative Process on Oceans and the Law of the Sea, held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City in June.

Reissen, a member of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, says the meeting considered the problem of ocean acidification and ways to address its impact on global, regional and national levels. She has been involved with ocean issues since the 1970s, when she participated in the Third UN Conference on the Law of the Sea.

Reissen earned her Ph.D. in international relations from Tufts University in 2003. She is an adjunct professor in Webster University’s Global Citizenship Program and in the graduate program in international affairs at University College of Washington University in St. Louis, where she is designing an online ocean law and policy course.
