ISM on trial - judgment to be delivered in London on 15 June 2005

Although only a mock trial of the ISM documentation on this occasion, it is one that should not be missed by any shipowner or manager wishing to gain experience on how their ship and shore personnel ought to familiarise themselves with the procedures, training and implementation of instructions in compliance with the requirements of both the ISM Code and the STCW Convention.  

This mock trial will reveal how lawyers can bring out the weaknesses of the ISM Code, how factual witnesses might cope in cross-examination, and how an expert witness can become the best friend a defendant could ever wish for or, indeed, the worst enemy he could ever imagine. And the judgment, delivered after a cross–examination, will all depend on how well the ISM systems have been implemented. 

The event is being arranged by the London Shipping Law Centre with an expert panel including Aleka Mandaraka-Sheppard (Moderator), The Hon Mr Justice Gross (The Judge of the Case), Tim Young QC (Counsel for the Claimants), Bernard Eder QC (Counsel for the Defendant), Ian MacLean (Witness of fact), Phil Anderson (Expert Witness), and Andrew Mitchell (Witness of fact). 

The venue is A. Bilbrough & Co, 50 Leman Street, London E1, 15 June at 1730 hours for 1800 hours.
