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.
