Summer School on Maritime Law: Dispute Resolution


Summer School on Maritime Law was held in Odessa, Ukraine, on 20-25 July 2010. This summer school was the first such academic event for ELSA Ukraine offered jointly by the ELSA Odessa and Center for International Law and Justice.


For the fourth time the official partner of the annual summer event for foreign students is International Law Offices.


This year Natalia Myroshnychenko, Senior Lawyer of International Law Offices, presented the case study: “Laytime & Demurrage. Maritime Arbitration and Dispute Resolution”. The case study covered three cases from the practice of the law firm. The disputes under the said cases were referred to the London Maritime Arbitrators Association and were solved by arbitration proceedings.


The students from the near abroad listened the lecture with profound interest as its practical value is quite obvious.


As the “sea lawyers” said that in order to be fluent in maritime law you need to forget all that you were taught on the shore because reverse rules are in action.


The participants learnt from leading maritime lawyers and scholars in the field about general issues of maritime law and dispute resolution practices in public and private spheres. Participants received hands-on insider information about maritime commercial arbitration, adjustments of disputes between ship-owners and seamen. The course also covered current trends and situation in dispute resolution in the sea law sphere between the states, as the continental shelf disputes as well as the recent practice of the International Court of Justice in the case of Romania vs. Ukraine (Maritime delimitation in the Black Sea (Romania v. Ukraine).


Also in the end of the law school a moot court on maritime arbitration was held among the participants.


Alongside with the strong academic program, a social part was reached in events, e.g. attendance of Odessa sea port administration, visiting the Opera, BBQ at the countryside and of course resting on the beach on the shore of the Black Sea. {/P} {P}Co-organizer: “Center for International Law and Justice”.
