The Institute of Maritime Law is a world leading centre for research, consultancy and training in maritime law, led by Director, Professor Andrea Lista.

Part of Law

The Institute of Maritime Law (IML) was founded in 1982 and was the first of its kind in the world. The focus of the IML is to build on an existing interest in maritime and international trade law as these subjects have historically been a strong feature within law at Southampton. The IML is now composed of both academic and external experts and since the outset, has established an international reputation as a world-leading centre in Maritime Law.
