Legal aspects in port operations and trade

February 4 - February 15


When working in the ports, you often need to be able to rely on a legal background to fully calculate all the risks and to make well thought decisions.
This seminar is very interesting for people with a legal background and for people who are often confronted with legal questions.

The program offers a practical training which is based on the daily practices in the port. It focuses on:

– aspects of international trade
– international contracts (and arbitration)
– logistics
– the legal structure of a port area
– the conflict of laws which can occur between international players
– the international conventions which have their compulsory application (e.g. road transport, transport by train, sea-transport, international trade documents, customs regulations)
