ABA sponsors presentation of students’ maritime articles

October 14, 2014

Tulane Maritime Law Journal members who have examined topics ranging from criminal liability in offshore drilling disasters to jurisdiction over aircraft crashes will present their work to practitioners and academics at an American Bar Association-sponsored event Oct. 22.

This is the second year that the Admiralty & Maritime Law Committee of the ABA’s Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section and the journal have partnered to spotlight student-authored articles selected for publication.

Liskow & Lewis is hosting the event, which is set for 5 p.m., with a reception to follow. The firm’s office is at One Shell Square, 701 Poydras St., Suite 5000, in New Orleans.

The partnership between the ABA committee and the Tulane Maritime Law Journal, which began in fall 2013, exposes practitioners to journal members’ research and scholarship and gives students an opportunity to get feedback and network with attorneys in the field. 

CLE credit is available for those who attend. RSVP at abatmljevent@gmail.com.

These presentations are scheduled:

Albert Farr: “Federal Income Taxes and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Marine Transportation: A Critique of U.S.-Owned, U.S.-Flagged Vessels’ International Shipping Income”

Allison Fish: “The Potential Application of 18 U.S.C. § 1115 to Offshore Drilling Disasters: A Requiem for the Seaman’s Manslaughter Act”

David Freedman: “A Court for Icarus: Defining Maritime Tort Jurisdiction in Aircraft Crash Cases”

Bryan Kitz: “Widening Gyre: The Seaman’s Uncertain and Expanding Right to Unearned Wages”

Katherine Wiarda: “The Problem’s in the Proof: How Public Companies Can Prove Compliance with the Jones Act Vessel Citizenship Requirements for Eligibility in the U.S. Coastwise Trade”
