It is a little known fact that a ship can be operated from one country, flagged for operational reasons to another and then has crew from yet another nation. This makes the domain of maritime law more intricate, yet exciting to pursue as a professional.
Topics under the maritime law is extremely varied and challenging which covers a huge range of subjects like salvage, collision liabilities, carriage of passengers, marine pollution liabilities, freezing injunctions, ship arrest, towage contracts, the limitation of liabilities and maritime liens.
An LLM in Maritime Law program would be ideal for students and professionals aiming to specialist in the shipping and maritime domain.
The program would also expose students to various aspects of international maritime law and the key subjects would include:
Admiralty Law – where the scope includes acquisitions and transfer of interest in ships; ship mortgages; collisions; salvage; and marine pollution.
International Law of the Sea – which explores the legal framework of a range of activities
Marine Insurance Law – which explores circumstances in which risks to parties, cargo and ships involved in international trade can be covered
International Sales Law
Carriage of Goods by Sea – which would offer insights into maritime law and shipping contracts, charter party agreements, marine environment, marine insurance and a gamut of other topics of relevance which would make you stand out.
The program would interest anyone who has a passion for shipping and the diverse legalities that ships need to comply with not just limited nationally but on an international level.
The course is also aimed to attract those who are already working in the industry but strive to get on to a very exciting and challenging role.
