This LLM (Master of Maritime Law) programme, which is being offered in Greece, is designed to benefit experienced professionals and executives involved in the shipping markets and sectors, and those companies which provide services to the shipping industries. Officials working in the maritime and international trade sector will also benefit from the highly commercial approach taken in the delivery of the programme.
