ED HICKS HILL DICKINSON SCHOLARS – MLASA 2018 ANNUAL CONFERENCE


Hill Dickinson, a major international law firm with one of the largest maritime practices in the field, has set up a memorial fund in honour of the late Ed Hicks. The fund has generously sponsored a number of students studying towards their LLM in shipping at the University of Cape Town to attend the¬†MLASA 2018 Annual Conference for the day. Ed’s widow Jackie has described the sponsorship as a good and fitting idea, as Ed benefitted from his education opportunities and was always willing to give up time and knowledge to others around him.
