Course content

Maritime law is a fascinating blend of commercial, environmental, private, public, national and international law.

Characters include salvors and scuttlers, pirates and pilots, treasure hunters and tug owners. Maritime law unfolds against the most dramatic of backdrops, such as war and invasion, storms and pollution disasters.

This course addresses issues as diverse as colliding ships, exploitation of fish stocks, and major maritime oil spills.

You will be taught by experts who are actively researching in this field. These internationally recognised academics have engaged in policy reform, as well as advised on legal issues to a variety of different actors.
