Course content

Note: This course will be given a new code from spring semester 2006, and you will find all relevant information JUR5401 – Maritime Law (discontinued)

Maritime Law is the study of legal rules applicable to shipping. By examining all the legal questions with respect to one area of activity, one discovers connections that one perhaps otherwise would not have seen. Since shipping is largely international and governed by international conventions, Maritime Law provides the perfect opportunity for experiencing the international aspects of Law. Students will also specialise in structure and management of shipping companies. The main part of the course is dedicated to core areas of Private Law as they apply to shipping.
