The Transport Law Commission is delighted to invite you to this year’s Pre-Congress seminar in the magnificent city of London on Tuesday, 1 September 2015.
When London was chosen as the venue for the 53rd annual congress of AIJA on 2-5 September 2015, we could not find a better opportunity to organize a marine insurance seminar. As home to Lloyd’s and the headquarters of many P&I insurers as well as prominent marine insurance brokers and others in the marine insurance industry, London is a centre for marine insurance like no other city on the planet.
Under the title “Marine insurance: covering the vessel’s life from cradle to grave” we will explore key aspects and current developments within marine insurance from the very beginning of a marine insurance contract (duties of disclosure and terms of marine insurance), during its life (the potential for direct actions and dealing with major casualties) and to its ending (salvage, wreck removal and dismantling of vessels).
We are proud to present former Law Commissioner David Hertzell and a director of prominent marine insurance brokers as keynote speakers, who will open the seminar with insights into the new English Insurance Act and marine insurance broking in the London market, and to have an array of expert practitioners of marine insurance law from a great number of jurisdictions as speakers.
The seminar will be take place at Grange St. Paul’s Hotel, which is also the venue of the annual congress, and will be followed by an enjoyable optional dinner in a spectacular maritime setting on the HMS Belfast.
By joining us for this seminar, you will not only enhance your knowledge and understanding of marine insurance and be able to obtain CLE credits in several jurisdictions, you will have the chance to meet and network with fellow practising or inhouse lawyers from around the globe.
The members of the organising committee look forward to welcoming you to London!
