Legal Process (15 Credit PDU)

About this course

This unit is concerned with the legal aspects of safety processes and how these impact upon individuals and organisations within the international maritime industries, including issues of jurisdiction and individual and corporate liability. 

It uses legal case studies to investigate the ways in which incidents and accidents have influenced the development of safety law and compares legislative and regulatory regimes operative in different jurisdictions and parts of the world. Students will research different models and draw out implications for shipping management professionals.

This unit is one of the four comprising the Maritime Safety Management optional strand within the MSc Shipping Operations.
