Postgraduate Research Student Conference

The London Universities Maritime Law and Policy Research Group's Postgraduate Research Student Conference 2010

The event on 16 April 2010 went very well despite a number of forced cancellations as a result of the closure of much of UK airspace following the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull in Iceland. The conference was held at the University of Westminster. The organisers are very grateful to all the speakers and delegates. A few photos of the day’s proceedings are reproduced here.
