Kollisioner till sjöss

Måndagen den 1 december klockan 16.00–18.00 arrangerar Sjörättsinstitutet ett extra seminarium på temat kollisioner till sjöss. Föredragshållare är professor Stephen D. Girvin vid Centrum för Sjörätt, Universitetet i Singapore. För närvarande är han sysselsatt med att uppdatera referensverket på området, Marsden, Law of Collisions.

Professor Girvin kommer att tala om: ”The law of maritime collisions is a significant niche practice in maritime law. It attracts the attention of qualified maritime lawyers with a seagoing and purely land-based experience. It is common in many law firms to find highly experienced marine managers (usually with many years at sea) taking on this important role.

This seminar will cover developments in the law relating to collisions during the past five years. The developments will include a consideration of both civil law and criminal law consequences. The speaker, who has many years’ experience working in the common law tradition, will cover a range of reported cases and other developments during this period, ranging from apportionment cases (e.g. City Cruises Plc v Transport for London (2012), The Snow Bunting (2012), and The Samco Europe and MSC Prestige (2011)) to cases on assessment of damages (e.g.The Vicky I (2008) and the recent case of Astipalaia v Hanjin Shenzhen (2014)) and cases on extension of time in collision cases (e.g. The Stolt Kestrel v The Niyazi S(2014)). We will also look at cases involving criminal prosecutions following collisions (the Hong Kong case of Kulemesin v HKSAR (2013)). If time permits, we may consider a recent Singapore initiative, the SCMA Expedited Arbitral Determination of Collision Claims (SEADOCC).”

Seminariet kommer att hållas i fakultetsrummet, Södra huset, C, plan 8. Anmälan om deltagande sker till forskningsamanuensen Boel Hilding Berggren (boel.hilding-berggren at juridicum.su.se) senast den torsdag den 27 november 2014. Antalet platser är begränsat. Observera att något postseminarium inte arrangeras denna gång.
