City Law School Set to Launch an LL.M. in Maritime Law in Dubai

LL.M. will launch in 2019; has been developed jointly with Dubai's DIFC Academy of Law

City Law School has partnered with the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Academy of Law to offer an LL.M. in Maritime Law in Dubai.

The new LL.M. is set to launch in 2019. It's designed for professionals, law graduates, and lawyers working in the maritime sector. It will cover a number of topics relevant to the maritime industry, including shipping contracts, insurance, admiralty practice, international sale of goods, and commercial arbitration.

Dubai's maritime industry is thriving due to the presence of one of the world's busiest ports. Dubai's shipping industry was expected to be worth some $66 billion in 2018, according to a 2017 analysis by Oxford Business Group.

The LL.M.'s content will be delivered by City Law School academics as well as practitioners and guest lecturers. Classes will be held in intensive weekend blocks, so that working professionals can fit the LL.M. into their busy schedules.

City Law School already runs an LL.M. in Maritime Law from its home campus in London. It also operates a Maritime Law LL.M. in Greece.

Please see the school's news release for more information about City's new Dubai-based LL.M. in Maritime Law.
