Following the previous success and high demand, ELSA Malta is proud to be hosting its 6th edition of the Summer ELSA Law School on Maritime Law this coming August!

The stellar academic programme will consist of lectures dealing with a vast array of Maritime Law topics delivered by the topmost professionals and academics in the field, serving to give participants as close a taste to this field of law as possible. It will even cater for an on-sight visit to Malta’s Free Port, the third largest transhipment and logistics centre in the Mediterranean region and will allow participants to interact with some of the leading lawyers in the area.

Participants will also benefit from a jam-packed social programme with a wide range of activities spanning from boat and bus parties to the vibrant atmosphere of Malta’s partying village, Paceville. Participants may even visit Malta’s sister islands, Gozo and Comino, with blue lagoons, heavenly beaches and rural attractions. All in all, we look forward to you experiencing our Mediterranean islands with a high expertise in Maritime law, sunny weather, friendly locals, and of course ELSA spirit!
