  1. Thank you ladies and gentlemen for making such a valuable source of information available publicly! The Institute members seem to be very active in various aspects of maritime and commercial law!

  2. I remember Professor Tettenborn from Exeter University – and it’s good to see his passion in these laws have not diminished. A great writer, orator, and blogger! Great blog site. Thank you Swansea University.

  3. Just wanted to congratulate you for this excellent blog! The IISTL is probably the largest academic entity in the UK working on various aspects of shipping and trade law. It is so refreshing to see an institution that takes this area of law seriously. I follow your updates regularly! Keep up the good work!
