The Rotterdam Rules — Implications for the Business of Shipping
02 September 2010


The Speaker

Professor Jason Chuah is Head of the Department of
Advanced Legal Studies at the University of Westminster. He
is Chair of the London Universities Maritime Law and Policy
Research Group.

Abstract
The Rotterdam Rules were adopted by the UN General
Assembly in December 2008 to establish a new global
regime governing the rights and obligations of participants in
the international carriage of goods partly or totally by sea.
This is an important development in international maritime
law because the ratification of the treaty will mean significant
change for all countries involved in international trade (and
there are many!).

This seminar will comment on some of the changes to current
regimes for the international carriage of goods by sea if the
Rotterdam Rules were to be adopted. In particular, we will
highlight some of the problems for the maritime sector,
especially in a trade generating and reliant country like
Malaysia. The seminar also considers the need for
complementary commercial law reform to support any
change the Rotterdam Rules would introduce.

Who Should Attend

This seminar will provide a platform for the meeting of minds
between Practitioners, Academics, and students keen in
matters involving Maritime law.
