Civil Liability in Maritime Transport

The importance of maritime transport is palpable in everyday life, with goods and passengers being constantly carried by sea in an environment that is prone to accidents frequently caused by adverse weather conditions and human error in shipping activities.
 
This workshop, through practical examples, will provide participants with knowledge of the obligations of the carriers of goods and passengers by sea, the basis of any potential liability, and will examine the possibility of limiting their financial exposure in cases of accidents.
 
Considering the nature of the topics covered, this workshop will be of interest to all those involved in the maritime industry including ship owners, charterers, operators, government officers from the maritime and port authorities, insurers, shipping agents, travel agents organizing maritime packages, and maritime law practitioners.
