About the course

 21 Aug – 1 September 2023

We have taken the tough decision that due to possible ongoing issues with international travel and also University guidelines it will not be possible to run the course in the way we would like to. The team at the Institute will use this delay to work on the 2023 course to ensure we deliver a refreshed course and look forward to welcoming everyone back to Southampton in 2023.

The Maritime Law Short Course at Southampton has been providing innovative maritime law training to delegates from around the world for the last 46 years. As the only comprehensive residential course available on maritime law in the UK, the course combines a top quality learning environment with world leading expertise.

The fusion of academic excellence and practical insight provided by our leading scholars, industry professionals and legal practitioners ensures an in-depth dissection of the legal issues affecting today’s shipping industry, as well as a crucial pragmatic advantage for the delegates.

 

CPD

For those delegates who need to record details of their ongoing professional training, the course may be treated as CPD activity under the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and the English Bar Standards Board schemes for continuing competence.

Speakers & course outline

Speakers
Speakers will be from the Institute of Maritime Law and a number of specialist speakers from the city of London and beyond.

Course Outline

The course features an interactive approach to training, including question and answer sessions and small group discussions, in addition to traditional seminars. Delegates will work in an environment where they are best able to engage with this ever-changing area of law and will train with others from major shipping law firms, maritime operators, traders and P&I Clubs. All participants will be provided with the latest legal materials, which will place delegates at the forefront of the industry’s developments, guaranteeing an enduring benefit for all the participants and their organisations. The Short Course provides a comprehensive all-round grounding in maritime law, with up to six intensive one hour sessions per day, interspersed with question and answer sessions, case studies and informal discussions.
