A ship is likely to get involved in disputes. These can be related to any aspect of its business, its operation, or contractual disputes (cargo/mortgages etc). Ship arrest offers a remedy for security by considering the ship itself as the defendant, otherwise known as an ‘in rem’ claim.
Ship arrest can be procedurally split into two aspects - arrests using the arrest conventions before the Courts of law and impounding through the territorial laws (especially in non-signatory nations). Few courses provide ever venture on arrests in non-signatory countries. Rules pertaining to the UK, US and Singapore remains quite known and systematically covered by most training providers while those of non-signatory nations remain an elusive challenge due to the chaotic nature of admiralty law.
This is where this course comes in to help. Study this 12-week programme and learn about the processes involved in ship arrest and how to resolve the issue effectively.
