Two major themes pervade the current outlook for the maritime sector. The first is climate change and how the industry will respond to increased environmental regulatory control. The second is how digital technologies, including automation and block chain, will affect shipping and ports. These developments pose considerable challenges for researchers and practitioners in the field of maritime law widely defined – from marine insurance and contracts of carriage to seafaring and regulatory compliance, there will be many exciting issues for discussion and debate.
The London Universities Maritime Law and Policy Research Group (LUMLP) Conference will take place on the premises of City, University of London on 3rd April 2020 to discuss recent developments in shipping and relevant legal considerations.
Now in its 11th edition, the conference brings together academics, postgraduate researchers, practitioners and other industry professionals to present their research, areas of work, and opinions. This is an opportunity to engage with an informed audience from various maritime professions, including lawyers, arbitrators, marine insurers and economists.
We invite all researchers and postgraduate students wishing to present their research to a friendly and supportive environment to join us at this conference. Submissions in all areas of Maritime Law and Policy, including relevant interdisciplinary work, are very welcome. The details for submitting your abstracts will be made available in the new year.
This one-day event aims to promote fruitful research collaboration between its participants and to encourage their integration in a community of legal scholars. A small fee will be charged to cover venue and catering costs.
For further information on the programme, venue and/or accommodation facilities please contact the event organiser, Pia Rebelo.
