The Global Shipping Law Forum is a collaborative initiative of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies, Queen Mary University of London, the Centre for Maritime Law of the National University of Singapore and the TC Beirne School of Law of the University of Queensland. 

Following the successful launch of the forum in Singapore in December 2015, the second edition of the Forum, generously hosted and sponsored by Ince & Co., will be held in London on 12th and 13th July 2017 with the theme of Shipping and Energy: The Role of the Law. The event is designed to bring together academic researchers, legal practitioners, industry participants, regulators and service providers to generate insight into current legal problems in this field, and the law’s role in addressing future challenges and fostering future opportunities. Each academic paper presented at the forum will be commented upon by a practitioner with experience in the field, so as to bring together rigorous in-depth academic research and practical insight.

Research-paper topics will include energy-cargo transportation contracts, bunkering contracts, hijacking and theft of oil cargoes, energy-related incidents at sea, environmental liability, arrest of energy-cargo-carrying vessels and legal questions surrounding floating liquid natural gas. Two discussion panels on Pollution and Climate Change: the Implications for the Shipping Industry will be held in the afternoon of Thursday 13th July.
