Introducing our academic staff

All members of the IISTL have substantial academic or practical experience in shipping and trade law. Many have forged a global reputation in their field.

In recent years membership has expanded to include specialists in public law and regulatory aspects of maritime and trade law.

The Institute has 19 members, of which 12 are drawn from the School of Law. Seven associate members, drawn from prestigious positions in legal practice, the shipping industry and the United Nations, also contribute significantly to the work of the IISTL.

Each year, the IISTL hosts visiting academics, often from partner institutions, who come to Swansea to advance their academic interests. They are invited to participate fully in our many research activities.
