Yes, I do. I received my "LLM International Maritime Law" from Swansea University in 2008. If you have any specific questions or would like to receive some general observations about the programme in Swansea, feel free to drop me a personal message.

Regarding the other programmes presented in this thread, it seems to me that - apart from Swansea - only Southampton offers a fully-fledged "Maritime Law LLM" providing a "real" choice between different modules and different lecturers.

Hi, as far I know you can do it with London Metropolitan Uni. or De Mondorft Uni. - good quality and an excellent teacher, Mrs Hawker.


Whilst I cannot say anything about the quality of teaching offered in those programmes, it seems to me that the tuition fee of 5,400 GBP at London Metropolitan University is very ambitious, to say the least. Given that the well-established course at Southampton, which has a superb reputation world-wide, plays in the 3,000GBP-league, I would not have to have to think twice...

As far as De Montfort University is concerned, they do not seem to offer a maritime law degree....

The overall view I would give on Maritime Law LLM's is to look in detail at the courses offered. How many courses involve actual core Maritime Law subjects and whether the programme has links with the profession and the industry.

As a general point of information City runs a suite of LLM courses on Maritime Law with the option of taking an LLM Maritime Law. With the Carriage of Goods by Sea course there is also an internship with the shipping specialist law firm Thomas Cooper

We also run an LLM Maritime Law programme in Athens for those who prefer Greek sunshine to London rain.

As I mentioned earlier, look at the University of Bristol.

Their LLM in Maritime law is top notch and of course we are talking about of one of the top law schools in the country.

Hello Wheretogo_,
it is interesting to hear your reiterating praise for Bristol. Would you please let us know the basis of your assessment?

At least according to your former posting attached below I would be surprised, if you were reporting your personal experience.

Don't get me wrong, I am not criticizing your statement regarding the quality of the LLM programme in Bristol. However, I think that your opinion would be much more valuable to prospective students, if they knew whether your statement is based on actual experience or hearsay.

Calling current University of Bristol LLM Students!!!
Sun Jul 25, 2010 04:25 PM
Hello,

Can any current students at the LLM at the University of Bristol share their views on the LLM course?

Having visited the law school I was very impressed with the library facilities and the department itself but did not speak to any students at the time.

Would be good to hear some views from current students!

Thanks!

Its very simple:

1-I visited the school earlier this year upon getting an offer and later spoke with LLM students and MA students. All of them seemed to enjoy the course and lectures.

2-I had a detailed tour of the deparment, including library, all of them very good facilities.

3-I also know that one of the academics (Simon Baughen) at Bristol teaching on the Maritime LLM was himself a shipping lawyer and a colleague of one of the solicitors in the firm I am working at. He is a very good lecturer.

4-Other names that come up is Professor Jonathan Hill that judging by his level and number of publications is very good in both International Commercial Arbitration and Litigation. I have heard of him in the past.

5-The head of the law school, Celia Wells is an expert in Bribery and corruption and was involved in the new UK Bribery 2010.

This goes saying that the research there is of the highest quality and judging from all this it is a very good place to go.

I hope this helps.
