BIICL Training Programme autumn 2023

Short Course: Law of the Sea
30 November -1 December 2023
Hybrid Course: in person in London and online

This highly-acclaimed course provides an insightful overview of international sea law and the pressing challenges confronting the world’s oceans and seas. Led by experts from both academia and practice, participants will gain a robust working understanding of the main sources of the law of the sea, including treaties, customary law, and judicial practice. These components are examined in various contexts, from marine environment protection, climate change and vulnerable species management to the governance of global commons, deep-sea activities and, crucially, the peaceful settlement of international maritime disputes. The course offers fresh practical insights by analysing real-world examples, current issues, emerging trends, and new directions in the field.

Indicative topics to be covered in this edition of the course include:

The course is beneficial to anyone interested in ocean governance including those working in government (including national and sub-national government), NGOs, legal practice, companies and academia (including students).
