  • Freight Forwarding, Logistics and Multimodal Transport
  • Carriage of Goods by Sea & Cargo Claims
  • Maritime Energy Law: Oil & Gas
  • The International Law of the Sea
  • Marine Insurance
  • London Maritime Arbitration
  • Shipbuilding Contracts.

A good balance of academic, legal and commercial expertise will be represented in the teaching team:

  • Anthony Rogers, senior lecturer on Maritime Law, and Trade and Commercial Law, the City Law School, the City University, London
  • Miquel Roca, lecturer at Abat Oliba Barcelona University and managing partner of Blas de Lezo Abogados, the top Spanish maritime law firm
