Why did you choose to study the LLM Maritime Law?
Coming from Greece, which has a strong and excellent tradition in shipping, I had a big admiration for the sea and I was keen on understanding how the shipping industry operates. Therefore and in order to pursue this goal that I had set, after graduating from Law School in Greece, I started working as a trainee lawyer in a law firm specialising in shipping law in Piraeus. One of my tasks was to perform a case law research on the subject of compensation awarded for salvage operations by English versus Greek Courts. It was at that moment the salvage bug bit me and I knew I wanted to acquire more specialised knowledge in Admiralty Law.
What made you choose City University London and The City Law School?
City University London was an obvious choice for me, since it has a long tradition, strong connections with the industry, as well as it is established in London, which is a vibrant, dynamic metropolis of the world. Moreover, City Law School has many advantages. To name a few, it offers a vast array of modules. In my case, Admiralty Law, Carriage of Goods by Sea, Marine Insurance & International Trade was part of the core programme.
Nevertheless, there were only some of the available modules that City Law School offered to someone interested in maritime law. In addition, it is the only University that offers specialized LLM but grants its students the opportunity to follow modules from other fields of law. For me, that meant I had the opportunity to delve with both marine and energy law modules.
Last, but certainly not least, the University has received excellent recommendations from former students.
