INTERTANKO and the Maritime Law Association of Australia and New Zealand (MLAANZ) jointly hosted a successful series of maritime law seminars in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland from 26-30 April 2001.

Members of INTERTANKO’s Documentary Committee joined forces with the MLAANZ for these seminars which were very well supported with a total attendance of 115 for the three days.

The seminars focused on the latest developments in maritime law in Australia, New York and England. The sessions included a series of case studies run as contested arbitrations. Also a video was shown on the Erika incident which had been prepared by the owners’ P&I Club, The Steamship Mutual Underwriting Association (Bermuda) Ltd., in connection with ITOPF and the IOPC Funds. This was followed by a discussion on oil spill compensation and liability. A further session was held on arbitration clauses under Australian law.

The Associations would like to thank the team of speakers whose commitment and enthusiasm ensured that all who attended the seminars participated in a day that was highly informative, practical and enjoyable. It was evident that the speakers formed a good team which contributed to the sessions being interactive and lively. The team of speakers consisted of:

Professor Martin Davies, Tulane Maritime Law Center

Mr William Honan III, Haight Gardner Holland & Knight, New York

Mr Stephen Martin, The Steamship Mutual Underwriting Association Ltd.

Mr Harvey Williams, Sinclair Roche & Temperley, London

Thanks must also go to the sponsors and hosts of the seminars; in Sydney - Blake Dawson Waldron; in  Melbourne - Phillips Fox; and in Auckland – The Port of Auckland Limited.
