8th Singapore Short Course

Published: 9 May 2016

Now entering its 8th year, the Singapore Maritime Law Short course will take place 9-20 May 2016 at the Hilton Hotel in Singapore.

This internationally renowned course offers two intensive working weeks of training on maritime law, by some of the most respected experts in the field.

The course speakers include leading scholars, experienced professionals and prominent legal practitioners; this fusion of academic excellence and practical know-how ensures both a rigorous examination of the most significant legal issues affecting today’s shipping industry and affords an invaluable pragmatic advantage for its delegates.

The Singapore Short Course has broken new ground with an innovative approach to legal training, shunning the passivity and strict formality of many purely lectured courses in favour of frequent case-studies, Q&A sessions and small group discussion, placing delegates in an environment where they are best able to engage with this ever evolving area of law. The provision of the highest calibre of the very latest legal materials positions delegates in the vanguard of developments in the industry, guaranteeing an enduring benefit for the participants and their employers.
