William Tetley Lecture in Maritime Law

Uptown Campus
John Giffen Weinmann Hall

Featuring Michael Brooks, Nordisk Defence Club

The 2020 Tetley Lecture in Maritime Law features a lecture by Michael Brooks, from the Nordisk Defence Club (Nordisk Skibsrederforening)  based in Oslo, Norway.

The club is a mutual association of shipowners, formed for the purpose of defending claims, particularly claims brought by charterers. Brooks is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (FCI Arb.), a panel member of the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre, and a visiting professor at Dalian Maritime University and the Scandinavian Institute for Maritime Law.

The title of the Lecture is “The Notice Quandary, or Imbalanced Information.” It is concerned with notice requirements at the beginning and the end of charterparty contracts, which is a pressing problem for Nordisk’s members (and other shipowners), because of the inherent difficulties of compliance. 

A reception will follow the lecture, which is open to the public.
