#LECTURE - The Autumn Lecture of the Irish Maritime Law Association will be held on 24 October at the offices of Dillon Eustace Solicitors, Dublin. The lecture will be given by Robin Middleton and will be on the subject of SOSREP, noting the lecture is for members of the association.
The Irish Maritime Law Association was formed in May 1963 for the purpose of allowing Ireland to input into important international shipping conventions. The association takes a very active part in Comite Maritime International (CMI) conferences which are drafted to bring about conformity in private international maritime law.
These include draft conventions on Maritime Liens and Mortgages, Civil Liability for Oil Pollution, Combined Transport, Carriage by Sea of Passengers and Off-shore Mobile Craft, Salvage, and Arrest of Ships. Many of the CMI drafts are later adopted by governments to form a uniform international maritime law.
