The Centre for Commercial Law Studies at Queen Mary University of London (CCLS) will be holding its second International Shipping Law Roundtable on 2 June 2016. This is a biennial event that has been already firmly established on the maritime law agenda of London. The Roundtable covers issues of strong current interest, of high relevance to business, featuring an in-depth discussion among, both established and young up-and-coming, academics and high-profile practitioners.
The 2016 Roundtable will be on the subject of 'Piracy, Refugees, War Risks and Sanctions: The Impact on Maritime Trade'. On the day, seven research papers will be presented and discussed in relation to the most recent developments over the use of armed security personnel on board merchant vessels; piracy post-incident obligations; seafarers' wages during captivity; limitations on the duty to render assistance at sea; the interception and rescue at sea of asylum seekers in the light of the new EU legal framework; war risks and sanctions in the carriage of goods by sea and by air; as well as bilaterally applied sanctions with a severe commercial effect on third parties.
The Roundtable is intended to serve as an intellectual platform to communicate academic cutting-edge research on issues relevant to the theme, and to facilitate dialogue between experts, including both academics and leading practitioners, from different jurisdictions.
This event is kindly sponsored by Stone Chambers.
This event has been accredited for 7 CPD hours with the Bar Standards Board.
