Swansea Law School Develops Closer Links with Nigeria


Professor Rhidian Thomas

In June 2008, Professor Rhidian Thomas (Director of the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law) gave a guest lecture in Nigeria at the 10th Maritime Seminar for Judges, organised by the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Transport and Nigerian Shipping Council in collaboration with the National Judicial Institution.

In his lecture, Professor Thomas discussed legal and practical implications of the new UNCITRAL Convention on Carriage of Goods by Sea.

The event, held in Abuja, attracted delegates from the judiciary and legal practice, and included a number of highly successful Nigerian practitioners who had completed their LLM degrees at Swansea and now hold important positions in legal practice.

Recognising the quality of its LLM programme, Swansea has proved to be a popular destination for Nigerian students.
