    Sir Anthony Evans, retired Court of Appeal judge and maritime arbitrator, was also amongst the delegates and chaired one of the sessions.


    Professor Rhidian Thomas, Director of the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law, commented “the positive response coming from various sectors of maritime law to the events organised by the Institute is very encouraging and the annual colloquia served to cement Swansea’s position as a leading centre of excellence in maritime law”.

    The leading publisher in the field, Informa International, and sponsor of the event, published the papers delivered in a book format entitled "Legal Issues Relating to Time Charterparties" in 2008.
