The addition of an LLM in International Shipping Law enhances the current offering of specialist LLM programmes offered by the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) within the School of Law, making Queen Mary the only college within the University of London to offer a specialism in this subject.

English law is frequently selected by contracting parties as the applicable law of shipping contracts, with London being chosen as the forum for the resolution of any disputes that may arise, whether in the courts or by arbitration. Thus London is in many ways unrivalled in the UK as a location to undertake studies in this area of law: it is home to the British Maritime Law Association (BMLA) - the UK subsidiary of the Comité Maritime International (CMI), the London Maritime Arbitrators Association (LMAA) and also to the vast majority of the top-tier law firms for Shipping Law in the UK, as ranked in the Legal 500 and the Chambers & Partners Guides.

Located as it is, in the centre of London, CCLS is the ideal place to read for an LLM in International Shipping Law: you will enjoy access to the many resources that the Centre has to offer, including its membership of the BMLA, as well as the resources of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS) Library and the libraries of neighbouring London colleges.

Teaching on modules offered under the International Shipping Law specialism will be enhanced by the contribution of distinguished guest speakers, including legal practitioners from City law firms with many years of experience in maritime law, and experts from the International Maritime Law Institute (IMLI), established under the auspices of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). New modules in maritime law subjects will also be available to students selecting other LLM specialisms.

Your fellow students will come from the UK and more than 80 other countries, each able to draw on prior academic and in many cases professional experiences from different jurisdictions to enrich discussion and debate in class.
