39th Donald O'May Lecture Event

3 November 2021

Event details

“Bull’s Eyes or Broad Principles? Modern Treaty Interpretation and the Sea-Carriage Conventions.” With the recent and continuing crop of cases at appellate level on the Hague and Hague Visby Rules, this lecture considers to what extent the English Court adopts a special approach to their interpretation rather than one of systematic adherence to the principles of the Vienna Convention, especially when viewed in the light of its approach to other, non-maritime, conventions and treaties.
