BIMCO's Stinne Taiger Ivø, Director of Contracts & Support, will be an instructor on this course about International Maritime Law.

“Can Maritime Law Efficiently Serve the Contemporary Needs of Shipping?”


Maritime transport is an essential pillar for world trade, carrying over 80% of international merchandise by volume. Serving the contractual needs of the commercial parties is one aspect of maritime law. However, these needs cannot be viewed in isolation of the challenges for shipping and the existing complex regulatory environment. The programme introduces the participant to the realm of maritime claims in a wider context, which includes areas such as ship registration, marine insurance, decarbonization, salvage, and compulsory liability. Further, the curriculum extends to electronic transport documents in light of cyberthreats. In addition, the repercussions that will ensue for shipping from autonomous ships will be addressed as well as the impact of sanctions for shipping.
