LLM - Shipping Law

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 programme offers a detailed investigation of the theoretical and practical issues that arise within maritime law. Our LLM in Shipping Law can help you to develop the expertise necessary to become a specialist in this major area of commercial law.
