MLA Site Additions

  • The Maritime Law Association of South Africa was established in February 1974 as a result of concern among maritime lawyers and the shipping industry that legislation in South Africa regulating maritime affairs did not appear to be keeping pace with developments elsewhere in the world.

MLASA Launch New Website

It is with pride that the Maritime Law Association of South Africa announces the launching of its brand new website.  Our site remains on the same web address being

One of the main features of our website will be the Home Page which features the MLASA’s period newsletter which has been named the “MLA Scene”.  The intention of the “MLA Scene” is to highlight  important events, occurrences and legislation relevant to the maritime legal fraternity and to the shipping industry as a whole.  The goal is to keep our members as up to date as possible.

Regarding the balance of the website, we have tried to make it as user friendly as possible for our members in order to add value to membership of the MLSA.  With updated information posted on our site regularly, the site will also lead to better interaction with its members.

Other than the legal and technical content of our Newsletter, we will also report on recent social events in the shipping and maritime industry which are of interest.  In this regard, we invite members to forward to us via our secretary any newsworthy items.

As the site is brand new and in anticipation of any teething problems please could members and other users of the site report any errors or difficulties with the site.

We hope you enjoy the use of our site and look forward to any comments that you may have in this regard.
