Sir Nigel Teare Lectures on Seaworthiness

Sir Nigel Teare with WMU President Designate, Professor Max Mejia; Vice-President (Academic), Professor Jens-Uwe Schröder-Hinrichs; and faculty and students in attendance at the lecture.

On 1 March the World Maritime University (WMU), welcomed Sir Nigel Teare, Judge of the Admiralty Court (ret.) in the United Kingdom as a Visiting Lecturer.

Students from the Malmö MSc Maritime Law & Policy and Maritime Energy Management specializations attended the special lecture entitled "Seaworthiness, Negligent Navigation and Safer Ships." The lecture provided insights on the approach of the English Courts to the notion of seaworthiness in the light of the recent judgment decided by the Supreme Court "The CMA CGM Libra" as well as the impact of new technologies to vessel seaworthiness, including Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Autonomous Ships (MASS).

Sir Nigel Teare was called to the Bar (Lincoln’s Inn) in 1974 and became a Bencher in 2004. He was appointed Queen's Counsel in 1991 and Recorder from 1997 to 2006. In 2011 he was appointed the Admiralty Judge, in charge of the Admiralty Court and judge in charge of the Commercial Court list from October 2017. He retired on October 1, 2020.
