Master of Laws
(Maritime Law)

The LLM (Maritime Law) is a specialization offered since the 2007-08 academic year. It enables law graduates to obtain specialized knowledge in maritime law, a field of great importance to Singapore and the region. Students will obtain a comprehensive overview of the legal matters relating to commercial shipping, marine insurance, shipping regulation and ocean policy. Overseas candidates accepted into this specialization will do it full-time within one academic year. Candidates working for companies based in Singapore and who wish to do the specialization part-time over two academic years, must furnish evidence of full sponsorship or a letter of support from their companies or the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).  This flexibility is also open to students in the Graduate Diploma in Maritime Law and Arbitration, which is designed for the non-lawyer professional.   Quick Links
