The academic programme for the Malta Summer ELSA Law School 2019 will consist mainly of a variety of lectures focused on Maritime Law. Given the fact that Malta is an island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea with some of the greatest ports in Europe seeing a large amount of ships daily, Maritime Law prevails on our island and is of paramount importance. Hence, we will be having top professionals and lawyers in this field delivering various lectures about different topics such as Salvage, Towage and Collision, Public International Law Aspects of Maritime Law, Ship Sale and Purchase, Yachting, Ship Finance, Insolvency, and Ship Registration.
In order to give more insight into Maritime Law and the aspects explored during the lectures, participants will also get the opportunity to visit the Malta Freeport. The Malta Freeport is an international port located in Birzebbugia, in the southeastern part of Malta. This port has an annual volume of around 3.08 million TEUs, in fact, it is currently one of the largest transshipment centres in the Central Mediterranean Region. On the final day of the academic programme, a workshop session will be held, and during this, the participants will have the chance to display their understanding of the topics dealt with throughout the week. To officially close the academic programme, a Closing Ceremony will be held at the International Martime Law Institute (IMLI), which is a a world recognized centre for the training of specialists in international maritime law, and where all participants will be awarded with a certificate.
