Opening of new OceanLaw.org website

The new ROLCO website will be open for business on New Years Day!

After 7 years of using the Post-Nuke/Zikula content management system, OceanLaw.org is preparing to move to the Drupal system. The new system will permit display of a wider range of media files, manage the display of upcoming events, improve access to files of all types and to links to other sites. It will be relatively easy to adapt to changes in user needs and interests and the system of tags will improve the task of finding pages of an increasingly large knowledge base.
