Ship Arrest Training

Understand the ship arrest procedure and how to resolve this issue effectively with real-world case studies and examples.

About the Course

Ship arrest is an excellent way to get security for a claim and potentially prepare for a judicial sale of the vessel. This may be a suitable remedy for a variety of creditors, such as owners that need to repossess the vessel under the charter party, bunker suppliers that have not been paid, a bank that has terminated the loan facility and wishes to draw on its mortgage, or crew members that have outstanding wages.

At this training course, attendees will learn the laws and procedural rules of the arrest of ships in Singapore, Hong Kong, the UK, the US, Australia and South Africa. The course will examine the types of claims that can lead to arrest and assess the admiralty jurisdictions in different parts of the world.

The ship arrest training course also combines lectures, discussions, and practical case studies relating to ship arrests, which aim to demystify legal terms and issues, explain the practicalities of arrests, and highlight pitfalls and solutions to manage them better.
