This course examines legal issues in tanker chartering. A key feature of the course is case studies run as mock arbitrations, these serve as a practical way of highlighting key issues and recent case law. One of the most popular sea transportation methods is to “charter” a tanker. A charter is somewhat similar to renting or leasing an apartment or a house.
