Chinese and English Maritime Law Conference Southampton and London 28th - 30th April 2014

With China's pre-eminent position in global trade, its laws will shape the future of the shipping industry and modern trade. The historical and modern importance of English maritime law means that it has been a strong influence on China’s law. From its English as well as international roots, the maritime law of China is developing in modern times into a distinctly Chinese framework with the capacity to influence world trade. This conference brings English and Chinese maritime law together under the same microscope to discover and discuss similarities, differences and trends.

The conference brings together many of the most eminent Chinese academics in the field of maritime law, representing a number of Chinese universities. Among the speakers are also many Chinese and other academics active in the UK. The topics covered include carriage of goods by sea, international trade law, ship arrest, pollution liabilities and marine insurance.
