    2012 IISTL Prize Goes to Jaime Albors

    At the end of each academic year, the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law (IISTL) awards a Prize to a LLM student submitting the best LLM Research Project as part of their LLM studies.

    This prestigious Prize is designed to encourage LLM students to produce a research output of highest quality and is open for any Swansea LLM student writing their projects in the realm of international shipping and trade law. The winner of the Prize in 2012 was Jaime Albors who originally hails from Spain. Jaime completed his LLM in International Maritime Law in 2011 at Swansea University. Prior to coming to Swansea Jaime studied Law in Spain at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and also Freie Universität Berlin in Germany.

    Jaime is currently working in the Marine and International Transport department of Clyde & Co LLP. Commenting after receiving the award Jaime said “I am very grateful to the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law for the prize. It is an honour for me and I  hope  this is the starting point of a successful carrier in the maritime industry”.

    Commenting on Jaime’s achievement, Professor Baris Soyer, Director of the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law, said: “Jaime was an exceptional LLM student. He has a solid legal background and has developed himself immensely during his time at Swansea. He is a quick-thinker and problem solver and I have no doubt he will adapt himself to the legal practice with ease. The LLM degrees offered by the Law School are well-known and regarded in shipping, banking and insurance sectors. The courses are taught by internationally recognised experts who are at the cutting edge of their disciplines and are very much practice oriented. I have every confidence that the LLM degree will accelerate Jaime's rise in the legal profession as he joins the elite class of Swansea LLM Alumni which is spread all around the world”.
