LLM Maritime Law


IMLI is good if you want to work for the government. It's not commercial maritime law.

not entirely true perhaps,,as far as curriculum is concerned IMLI Malta offers a wide variety of both public and private law courses..however prospects in industry 'might' be limited simply because IMLI is not as old an institute as Southampton or Oslo are but nevertheless IMLI's alumni are all workin at great places round th world..
i dont know how tough it is to get in ther but i guess they dont receive many applications and anyone interested in maritime law or law of the seas should give IMLI a shot..plus points definitely are its institutional affiliation with IMO, great faculty and many high-profile visitors, monthly stipends to cover living expenses and Malta has a famous port and i would say that maritime law should be read in a port town to supplement the studies..

Remeber guys that the maritime program in cardiff was cancelled and the program is now in Swansea... also remeber when applying to universities the lectures are very important... so take into account that swansea have a very good team in Maritime law, because their lecturers used to be lecturers in Southampton, Imli and cardiff among other universities.
hope this help

Hi, probably I don't ask at the right place but it's worth trying. At the moment I am doing LLB in South Africa. The education is OK, but my problem is that I don't feel very comfortable with that environment. The locals speak how good and perfect is everything, but actually the reality is to the contrary. So, my question is whether anybody knows how I can transfer my studies in Europe. I was looking for some universities, but either there was no information on the web-sites or there was no response via e-mail when trying to contact their departments.
The idea of coming to RSA was after getting LLB to continue with LLM in Maritime Law, but at this moment I wonder whether it's useful to stay here at all. Considering the high fees for internationals and the almost 0% opportunity to find job, it will be much better and cheaper for me to study in UK. Does anyone know for such transfer possibilities giving me the option after graduating to continue with Maritime Law?
Thanks for the advice.

If you are completing a LLB in South Africa, then there would be no problem in principle in coming to another common law jurisdiction like the UK and taking an LLM in Maritime Law here. There is no "transfer" issue. You just apply for an LLM programme. There are a few places which do Maritime Law, like Southampton and my law school, City, which offer a suite of Maritime courses, and a number of other LLM programmes which offer at least two Maritime law options.

It is also the case that London has an extensive legal shipping community-both law firms and barrister's chambers-so you will have a pool of places from which to seek employment in that sector.

I hope the above comments are helpful

Hi all,
I too have this dilemma on where to pursue higher Maritime studies in UK -with respect to the employment opportunities thereafter.

For an ex-seafarer (Master Mariner) who wishes to pursue higher studies in UK - (MBA or MSc) with the ultimate aim of working there (Yes - I can sense some inhospitable comments!) (pref. research in Academic circles, teaching or office job in UK - in that order),

a) Which UK universities and which courses do you feel would be best suited?
(I have an interest in general maritime sciences including Maritime law and insurance, but the job availability would be the deciding factor. (Yes - I've completed the MICS exams and won an award in one of the papers, so you could say I have a slight academic inclination). I am interested in insuarance and maritime law too.

b) I presently am down to London Metropolitan (MSc Maritime transport) and Greeenwich Maritime (MBA Shipping) and Southampton (Maritime Law)

c) Yes - I am familiar and prepared for the fact that studying there would be hardwork and does not guarantee a job.

Appreciatively ,
Captain Anshuman Naik

Hi friends,

I am planning to do LLM Maritime Law from UCL as an external student. I will be completing LLB from Bombay (Mumbai) University by July 2007. Can some one give me some advise on its utility if I plan to practise in Maritime Law in Europe and Asia?

Hi! I am wondering which school in the UK offers the best quality LLM in Maritime Law. I would really appreciate a reply.

Thanking you in advance.

The University of Nottingham offers an LLM in Maritime Law, alongside a very popular LLM in Internationa Commercial Law. Nottingham has an excellent reputation for both research and teaching.

I know from a friend who I studied with at undergraduate level went to do an LLM in Maratime Law. He said it was really only a choice between UCL and Southampton. In the end he chose UCL.

I am afraid your friend is wrong. Maritime law is taught more widely in the UK than just UCL and Southampton. Nottingham, Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff and Swansea all teach maritme law. Moreover, you may want to combine the study of maritime law with something else. Nottingham has a very strong LLM programme that attracts about 150 students from 40-50 countries each year and offers courses in a wide range of commercial, European, and public international law subjects, apart from maritime law. That's not to say UCL was a bad choice. But there are more options than just UCL and Southampton.

Sorry, I don't think I made myself clear. My friend was talking in terms of reputation for maratime law. His belief was that UCL and Southampton have the most respected courses. He is an attorney from Russia who specialises in shipping. As for combining maratime law with other subjects - UCL may be leaving the intercollegiate London LLM - but it has a better reputation than Nottingham internationally.

Having recently completed LLM in International Maritime Law at Swansea I have to say that the programme exceeded my expectations both in terms of contents and teaching. A fantastic teaching team which also includes a practicioner who was a senior-partner in a well-established City firm. There is a well-established Institute in the School focusing on shippinga and international trade. Did you know that the Institute members also teach courses for City law firms, BIMCO members and employees of BP? Two of my friends who completed the course are now in a City firm completing their training. In short, a brilliant place to study and the degree is well-recognised in shipping circles. You will not be a number at Swansea! Go for it!

Hello people. Would like some info relating to the application (what documents I have to submit) at the University of Lund (llm in maritime law) because can't find it on their website. I even can't understand the purpose of this on-line application.

Any shared application experience would be highly appreciated.

In addition, I would like to know any other universities in which university degrees obtained from english-speaking unis serve as a proof of knowledge of english. Why i need this info? I graduated from UCT with an LLB several days ago (uct is an engliswh-speaking uni). I want to continue studying in Europe in 2008.

However, because English is my non-mother tongue, according to the uk uni admission policies (swansea and southampton) I have to sit for toefl/ielts. I don't know why their policy is such. In addition, i cant understand why a person with the same qualifications as mine (i compare myself with uct llb graduate whose mother tongue is english) should be treated in a different way when we make our applications. doesn't it sound like unfair, etc discrimination? i don't know how to deal w/ this issue but whatever answers i have received from southampton and swansea, nobody dealt with the fact that my degree is from english speaking institution; they simply say ' toefl/ ielts is a requirement for non-english applicants!!!!" Not that I can't sit for these tests but it's veeery frustrating. Any comments, proposals????

thanks
