The structure and design of the LLM, Maritime Law is designed to be internationally competitive as it covers the appropriate international nature of maritime practice. Students who have been through this course will not only acquire knowledge of maritime law principles, but will also becomes familiar with the procedural aspects of the admiralty courts, and develop an understanding in some depth of the commercial and economic aspects of shipping. Finally students will have a greater understanding of shipping practices and their international nature and be able to participate meaningfully in the maritime industry.
