The University of Southampton, the largest higher education institution in south- eastern UK, has flagged off a three year, full- time maritime law programme called LLB Maritime. The university, which has over 17,000 undergraduate and 7,000 postgraduate students, has plenty of maritime law expertise, but till now it has benefited mainly postgraduate students.

One of the Professor in head of the School of Law, University of Southampton, said at a media briefing in the Capital, When local and international students expressed their desire to specialize in marine law while pursuing their undergraduate degree, we decided to offer a qualifying law degree to enable students to attend maritime law classes in the final year. An exposure to maritime law at the undergraduate level will enhance the employability of students.

In the first two years, the course will focus on the core LLB programme — contract, criminal and constitutional law and legal systems and reasoning in the first year, and law of torts, land law, equity and trusts, and European Union law in the second year. In the final year of the LLB Maritime programme, the students will be asked to settle for three options from a list consisting of admiralty law; carriage of goods by sea, commercial conflicts of law and international litigation, and commercial sales and public international law. They’ll also be required to choose an additional subject from the standard LLB options.

Apart from taking these papers, students will be required to write a 10,000-word dissertation on a maritime law- related subject as part of their compulsory legal research and writing course. Entry to this course will be based on the student’s academic references, a strong personal statement and a good academic record. The tuition fees for international applicants entering the university in the 2011- 12 academic year will add up to £ 10,820. As this is a qualifying law degree programme, it is suitable not only for those who would like a career in the legal profession, but also for those who wish to pursue careers in industry, shipping or commerce. Check the list of other courses, which is offered by University of Southampton.
