Event details

"Anglo-Chinese Maritime Law & Practice in Transition IV" follows the Law Reform Projects of UK Insurance Contract Law and the Draft Chinese Maritime Code, as well as significant developments in case law. This event will attempt to examine the current trends in maritime law and its implementation in China and the United Kingdom, and bridging the gap between Chinese Law and English Law. This will be achieved by generating cross-border and cross-system discussions on important issues of international maritime law, trade and practice, at a time of considerable legal change within two jurisdictions respectively.

A truly international group of speakers will present papers, which will contribute to a insightful examination of
