At the CMI conferences, international conventions are drafted to bring about conformity in private international maritime law. These include draft conventions on Maritime Liens and Mortgages, Civil Liability for Oil Pollution, Combined Transport, Carriage by Sea of Passengers and Off-shore Mobile Craft, Salvage, and Arrest of Ships. Many of the CMI drafts are later adopted by governments to form a uniform international maritime law.
The IMLA has been happy to assist the Irish Government from time to time, drawing on its vast experience in the area of private international maritime law. The Association has been honoured by invitations to join the Irish government’s delegation at diplomatic conferences on maritime law.
The IMLA provides a forum for those who are engaged in international maritime trade. If you are a merchant, a ship-owner, an underwriter, banker or lawyer advising these disparate interests, you can find out more about joining.
