This course provides advanced level knowledge and skills in the areas of maritime law and commercial law. Students will develop international and commercial perspectives on issues relating to maritime law, and will learn to operate with expertise in the multifaceted interface between the different areas of the field. Students will acquire a broad understanding of maritime law, including its fundamental principles and values, the influences upon it, the substantive rules of the discipline and the underpinning architecture and institutions; as well as an understanding of the different areas within the discipline, such as wet shipping law and dry shipping law. Critical awareness will be fostered by the study of the latest literature, international legislation, international conventions, EU law, and international case law.
