In May 2014, Professor Soyer was invited by the Italian School of Judiciary (Scuola Superiore Della Magistratura) to speak at their Conference held at Genova on international maritime law.

This event, which was organised in collaboration with the Association of Bar of Genoa, attracted  a great number of delegates  from the Italian judiciary and legal practice. Professor Soyer in his paper evaluated the position of standard cargo insurance on offer in international insurance markets highlighting their limitations especially in the context of multimodal transport.  Professor’s Soyer paper was thought provoking and generated lively debates on the topical issue of  multimodal transport and insurance.
