International Maritime Law Seminar Singapore

For more than 15 years the International Maritime Law Seminar has been held annually in London. With an average attendance of more than 250 Insurance and Maritime Law specialists, the International Maritime Law Seminar has grown from a small event to one of the most heavily anticipated legal seminars in London.

The International Maritime Law Seminar had its inauguration in Singapore in 2018 and we are excited to announce that the fourth International Maritime Law Seminar held in Singapore will take place on Thursday, 25 May 2023. You and your colleagues are invited to attend this informative event. This year’s theme is «Recent Development in Maritime Law Around the World.»

The International Maritime Law Seminar is a half-day complimentary event, and will take place at the Asian Civilisation Museum. This year we will have 13 speakers from 12 different countries, addressing recent developments in maritime and transport law within their respective jurisdictions.

The seminar will be divided into three sessions and presentations will be provided by some of the most recognized and qualified foreign attorneys in the field of Maritime Law.
