Maritime LawMaritime law is a fascinating mixture of commercial law and environmental law, of private law and public law, and of national law and international law. It deals with issues as diverse as the liability of carriers of goods to the exploitation of fish stocks, the legal response to stowaways and the insurance response to smuggling.
The aim of an LLM Maritime Law is to develop legal analytical and research skills, including synthesis, evaluation and application of relevant material.

LLM Maritime Law programs also develop the application of legal, management and communication skills necessary to complete the program and any research project. Such skills are also valuable for any future practice of maritime law.
