ELSA Malta is excited to welcome you to SELS Malta, which will take place between August 22 - 29, 2024! SELS Malta is an opportunity for law students and legal professionals to immerse themselves in the beautiful island of Malta while gaining invaluable insights into Maritime Law.

Renowned for its rich history, cultural sites and beautiful weather, Malta is the perfect summer destination! During our SELS, Participants will get the opportunity to explore the capital city of Malta, Valletta, discover the historical artefacts of Malta and enjoy the island life. Located at Campus Hub at the University of Malta, SELS Malta will allow Participants to experience the university life of students studying in Malta. 

Malta's prime location in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, complemented by its deep harbours and cutting-edge port facilities, positions it favourably in the global shipping landscape. Offering a diverse range of international maritime services, from Freeport operations to shipbuilding and repair facilities, Malta has established itself as a prominent player in the maritime industry. Its yacht registration legislation, tailored to the needs of the yachting sector, coupled with attractive tax planning options, has spurred a notable increase in super-yacht tonnage registration. With the sixth largest maritime flag globally and the largest in Europe, Malta's maritime jurisdiction continues to inspire confidence among stakeholders worldwide, making it the perfect place to study Maritime Law.

Join us for yet another edition of Summer ELSA Law School in Malta on Maritime Law!
