City Law School launches Maritime Law LL.M. in Athens, Greece

At a recent ceremony in Athens, over 30 key figures from Greece’s legal and shipping community attended the launch of The City Law School’s LLM in Maritime Law. The City Law School is preparing to deliver modules off its Maritime Law LLM in Greece for the first time.  As the centre of Europe’s shipping industry, Greece offers students an environment with ample opportunities to engage with the industry.  Some of the modules are designed for students who work full-time, as they will be delivered in weekend blocks, running in both March and September 2009.

All of the modules delivered in Athens will be taught in English, making them suitable for all nationalities to study, and will cover: Carriage of Goods by Sea; Admiralty Law; Marine Insurance; International Sales Law; and World Trade Law.

Anna Katsoulaki, a lecturer for The City Law School’s LLM in Maritime Law, says: “We will be able to provide our students with an excellent insight into the Greek shipping industry through our links with shipping firms and those specialising in Maritime Law. The LLM in Maritime Law is a unique qualification, reflecting The City Law School’s outstanding reputation in this field.”

Anthony Rogers, the Director of the LLM in Maritime Law says: “City already attracts a large number of Greek students to the wide-ranging courses that it offers. This is a great opportunity for The City Law School to offer some of the modules to students who have employment or family commitments in Greece.”
