Taking into account the need to regulate such a wide range of sea-related transactions, this specialised LLM has been developed with a view to providing students with a sound and relevant body of information and understanding of Shipping Law. The course focuses on various aspects of maritime law, from the different contracts for the carriage of goods to marine insurance, international trade and law of the sea.

Modules typically include: admiralty law; carriage of goods by sea, land and air; charterparties (law and practice); e-commerce; international commercial arbitration (accredited by the Institute of Chartered Arbitrators (CIArb)); international trade law; law of the sea; marine insurance law; oil and gas law; ship and other mobile assets finance law.

Assessment methods

All LLM modules are assessed by a combination of coursework and examination, with an equal weighting of 50% normally given to each component in the final total assessment.
