The broad spectrum of topics addressed in this course is one of its distinctive features. Academics and shipping industry practitioners will be delivering highly engaging lectures encouraging class discussions and debates.

The course will provide learners with:

  • the opportunity to familiarise with widely used standard contract terms and understand what they mean for their organisations and their clients
  • an appreciation of the legal liabilities that arise from accidents or incidents that occur during maritime operations or cargo handling
  • a chance to engage with the legal effects of contractual breaches, including cargo claims, crew claims, and other common disputes
