  • 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.

NAUTICAL INSTITUTE SEMINAR, APRIL 2013 – MEETING THE CHALLENGES FOR AN AFRICAN MARITIME ECONOMY


The  seminar was,  to  an  extent,  a  follow  up  to  the  successful SA  Maritime  Industry Conference (SAMIC) convened by SAMSA in Cape Town last year. Perhaps  its  most  positive aspect was  that  the  broad  representation of  professional bodies participating allowed reflection not only of where SA needs to go to take full advantage of opportunities waiting for the maritime industry yet to embrace, but also to reflect with some satisfaction on the current state of the industry.

For more details on on the seminar, please find summarized papers presented by the various speakers.
