With English law recognised internationally as a dominant legal system providing the basis for maritime and trade contracts, and with London as the single most important forum for settling disputes, both through court litigation and arbitration, the International Maritime Law programme offered by the World Maritime University in collaboration with Lloyd’s Maritime Academy approaches law in relation to how it is applied in practice.
Students with a prior degree in Law may continue their studies to the degree of LLM in International Maritime Law. The LLM is offered in collaboration between Lloyd’s Maritime Academy and the World Maritime University.
This course is of great relevance to those who wish to acquire expertise in international trade and maritime / shipping law. The programme has been specifically designed for students from a wide variety of commercial shipping backgrounds, both legal and non-legal, including existing lawyers; those engaged in the shipping and trading industries; trading brokers; shipping/chartering organisations; salvage organisations; P&I Clubs; insurance; and those engaged in investment, finance and banking.
