International Maritime Law Webinar

As part of the International Maritime Law Postgraduate Diploma Programme by distance learning, the second of three in situ seminars was recently delivered in a two-day webinar that took place in real time across five continents and included participants from Australia, Canada, UK, Cyprus, Trinidad & Tobago, Denmark, France, Namibia, India, and Singapore. Speakers for the seminar were Nigel Jacobs (Barrister QC), Dr. Vincent Power, Archie Bishop, Professor Rhidian Thomas, Richard Henderson (Solicitor), and from the World Maritime University (WMU) Associate Professor Henning Jessen and Professor George Theocharidis, who was also the moderator.

WMU offers two International Maritime Law programmes, an LLM and a Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip), both in partnership with Lloyd’s Maritime Academy. The 11-month PgDip is designed to develop knowledge of international trade and maritime law, increasing students’ understanding of how commercial trade ventures may give rise to legal issues. Three in situ seminars, delivered in London, are typically an option within the programme, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic the second and third seminars are being delivered online for the Class of 2020. 

The 16-month LLM provides an advanced understanding of a specialist area of maritime law and enables practitioners in both the legal field and maritime industry to improve research and independent study skills as well as the ability to develop substantiated critical argument. It is open to students who have completed successfully the Postgraduate Diploma in International Maritime Law and who hold an LLB (or equivalent) degree. One in situ seminar is offered in-person in London.
