Shipping Law (LLM)


Course Description

Around 90% of global trade is carried by sea. It remains the most cost efficient method for transporting raw materials and finished products around the world. This requires a complex network of contracts involving ship owners and operators, cargo owners, banks and insurers.

The United Kingdom has a long standing expertise in the law relating to these transactions, and provides dispute resolution services for parties with no connection to the UK.

Moreover, the potential exploitation of marine resources (whether mineral or fish) is fertile source of dispute between States. This course offers a detailed investigation of the theoretical and practical issues that arise within maritime law and can help you to develop the expertise necessary to become a specialist in this major area of commercial law.

The LLM Shipping Law course provides you with a general appreciation of current issues in specific areas of law, both domestic and international. It stimulates a critical approach to evaluation of current and proposed regulation and cultivates independent and original thought.

This programme enables you to undertake in-depth research and demonstrate advanced knowledge in specific areas of law.

Distinctive features

The LLM Shipping Law course is very flexible and offers a wide range of modules providing you with the ability to customise the course to meet your own professional and/or employment needs or interests.
