Transport at sea – what happens when something goes wrong? If you are curious about the rules and regulations that govern the shipping industry and want to learn more about the legal side of this international business, then the LLM in Maritime Law is the programme for you.
Maritime Law is an exciting and challenging international subject for lawyers and others with an interest in shipping.
This LLM programme gives you a specialization in a truly international field of law, which is of great practical importance.
Which aspects does the programme cover?
The program covers all private law aspects of shipping.
It discusses traditional subjects like transport of goods and passengers:
- Can owners claim compensation if their goods are damaged or lost during transport?
- Can passengers bring charges against a shipping company if the vessel is not ship-shape?
In addition the programme cover more recent subjects like:
- Ship causalities: Who will pay for damages to the environment caused by oil pollution from a big tanker?
- Attacks on vessels: Can we prevent attacks on vessels from terrorists and pirates, and who will pay for the damages caused?
- Effects of the global financial situation on the shipping industry: Can I cancel a contract for building a new vessel because an economic crisis has made it impossible for me to trade the vessel profitably?
