The Piraeus Bar Association is organizing the 9th edition of its International Conference of Maritime Law. This event is the sequel of a tradition established 24 years ago. It will be held in Piraeus from 13 to 15 October 2016 and will deal with Maritime Safety and Security (legal implications to ships, cargo and the human element). Young scholars and practitioners are also invited to participate to an essay competition, the “Young Maritime Prize”. More information about the conference can be found here.
