City Law School welcomes inaugural cohort of students to LLM Maritime Law programme in Dubai
This programme is the first of its kind in the Gulf region.
The City Law School, part of City, University of London, welcomed its inaugural class of the new LLM (Master of Maritime Law) programme in Dubai this month.
This postgraduate qualification is the first of its kind in the Gulf region and has been introduced in collaboration with the DIFC Academy of Law and the Emirates Maritime Arbitration Centre (EMAC).
It is designed to serve law graduates, lawyers, seafarers, civil servants and professionals involved in the shipping sector. Students on this LLM programme will gain a broader understanding of the practical aspects of maritime law in relation to matters such as shipping contracts, insurance, admiralty practice, international sale of goods and commercial arbitration. The classes are delivered by City Law School academics over intensive UAE weekend blocks, enabling students to fit their studies around their full-time professional commitments.
Professor Jason Chuah, Professor of Commercial and Maritime Law and Director of the LLM Maritime Law Programme, said: “City, University of London is delighted to introduce the LLM Maritime Law in Dubai, a programme which has been designed to meet the growing needs of the shipping sector in the UAE and wider Gulf region. The course has a strong commercial and practical focus and places much emphasis on cutting edge legal developments.”
The entire programme consists of four taught modules and a dissertation of 20,000 words. It can be completed in 14 months.
