Maritime law /Legal advisor for shipping companies


Hi everyone,
I am a third officer currently sailing with a shipping company and I am planning to get a degree in law so I could settle as an advisor for shipping company or with p and I club. But I have no guidance as to what to be done procedure wise. I would really appreciate any help and guidance you could provide as if llb is good or GDL followed by LPC would be good.

Thanks for your advice.

If you want to become an advisor, you will be required to undertake an LLB and then the postgraduate qualification of your country that allows you to become a solicitor/barrister.

If however you want to work in the UK, then you must have an undergraduate degree first and then follow that with the GDL and then the LPC in that order.

I guess that would depend on the company.

What is your education? Do you hold a undergraduate degree already?

If this is the case, and depending on the country, an LL.M. in law of the sea (some seem to call it maritime law) should do the trick. Again, you would have to check the policy of the relevant company(ies) you want to work for, but an LL.M. should be fine (since you do not want to plead before a court).
