Bills of lading
Bills of lading are at the core of international trade. By nature, they involve sellers, buyers and carriers who are often located in different countries but share various rights and obligations. This module assists students to identify problems that have arisen in the past in the courts or by arbitration and to minimise the effect of similar problems they may experience during their professional careers. Students will also be introduced to international rules and legislation, their effect on the carriage of goods by sea and how they have been interpreted by judges and arbitrators in the past.
BIMCO is pleased to organise a Masterclass on Marine Cargo Claims, which will examine in detail specific issues which arise when goods are damaged, lost or delayed during transit. This three-day course will focus on the legal liabilities of carriers and the practical issues which arise when claims are made against ships, including the mechanics of pursuing and defending cargo claims.
