LLM in Maritime Law: Explore a sea of career opportunities

Last Updated - June 4th 2019By - satyam.purwar

The impact that sea creates in existence of humanity in the present world is inevitable to notice in all the squares of life - from commerce facilitation to trade and navigation routes, from providing critical life sourcing nutrients to the source of recreation, from natural resources to facilitating tourism. More than 90% of global trade is carried by sea. Transportation through sea is the cheapest of all methods for transporting raw materials, intermediates and finished products around the world. The opportunities arising out of sea and seafaring is not just limited to working in the waters but also the shores have to offer an equal number of job opportunities, if not more.

Maritime Law is one such enticing field of specialization within the larger bounds of the maritime sector. While the generic Civil / Criminal Law is developed to maintain a civil society, and resolve disputes between members of a single nation, this degree is designed to promote speedy resolution of disputes among persons/ organizations from possibly different countries involved in Maritime Trade or Commerce. It can also include, the events that have occurred at sea including the matters involving international regulations, conventions, and policies. The number of offerings for skill development and employability enhancement is very limited in the country when it comes to these subjects of Maritime.

Some of the business areas which have opportunities for Maritime Law experts are:

Shipping and Trading IndustriesStevedoresMaritime charters
Freight Forwarders / Customs House Agents (CHAs)Insurance and Reinsurance CompaniesManagement Consultancy Firms specifically engaged in Maritime Consultancy
Shipping organizationsProfessional Marine Underwriting CompaniesPort Authorities and Other Associations
Salvage organizationsShip Management CompaniesIndian Naval Services
Shipping BrokersProcess Outsourcing FirmsLegal Firms practicing in Admiralty Law
P & I Clubs

Maritime Law is a complex yet exciting weave of understanding contracts involving ship owners and operators, cargo owners, banks and insurers, the exploitation of marine resources and understanding the international marine borders.

The subject of Maritime Law has remained unexplored in terms of academic training. Only a countable few colleges in India are offering this specialization, while the demand in this field has been increasing significantly. The LLM in Maritime Law offered by Gujarat Maritime University would provide students a detailed understanding of the subject which would open up plenty of career options nationally and internationally.
