LLM in Maritime Law
Σε συνεργασία με: University of Hertfordshire
The rationale for this programme is that it extends students' understanding of the law relating to shipping, such as marine insurance, ancillary contracts, the ship as property as well as it develops students' knowledge of international trade such as social, economic and political influences upon the trading relationships of parties. In addition, students are given the opportunity to broaden their expertise with the two modules that they will choose from the provided optional courses.
The structure of the programme is designed in such a way in order to offer candidates the opportunity to acquire knowledge, skills and understanding in order to face the challenges of the dynamic and complex environment of law.
Students are expected to gain knowledge and understanding of, for example:
the law relating to shipping
the ship as property
the choice of law/jurisdiction clauses
the different types of international commercial contracts and the respective implications for the parties involved
the various international conventions applicable to international trade
a consideration of bills of lading
