The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

The IMO In­ter­na­tional Mar­itime Law In­sti­tute held its 29th Grad­u­a­tion Cer­e­mony on 9 June at the Malta Mar­itime Mu­seum in Vit­to­riosa. The cer­e­mony, presided by Ki­tack Lim, IMO sec­re­tary-gen­eral and chair­man of the IMLI Gov­ern­ing Board, was at­tended by many dis­tin­guished per­son­al­i­ties.

Dur­ing the Grad­u­a­tion Cer­e­mony 42 stu­dents from 34 coun­tries were awarded the De­gree of Mas­ter of Laws in In­ter­na­tional Mar­itime Law. Seven stu­dents from seven dif­fer­ent coun­tries were awarded the De­gree of Mas­ter of Hu­man­i­ties in In­ter­na­tional Mar­itime Leg­is­la­tion and two more stu­dents were awarded an Ad­vanced Diploma in In­ter­na­tional Mar­itime Law. Their grad­u­a­tion is the cul­mi­na­tion of a very in­ten­sive year of stud­ies in all the ar­eas of in­ter­na­tional mar­itime law, in­clud- ing law of the sea, ship­ping law, ma­rine en­vi­ron­men­tal law, in­ter­na­tional mar­itime se­cu­rity law and mar­itime leg­is­la­tion draft­ing.

In a mes­sage to the grad­u­at­ing class, Lim noted that “the qual­ity train­ing of­fered at the In­sti­tute has helped de­vel­op­ing coun­tries to take their right­ful po­si­tions and play their part in in­ter­na­tional mar­itime af­fairs. IMLI’s ed­u­ca­tion has en­sured that IMO mem­ber states have the le­gal ex­per­tise re­quired for the in­cor­po­ra­tion and ef­fec­tive im­ple­men­ta­tion of in­ter­na­tional mar­itime con­ven­tions. IMO and its mem­ber states are proud of this in­sti­tu­tion which, year af­ter year, con­trib­utes to the ca­pac­ity build­ing of na­tions around the world by pro­duc­ing a cadre of high-level man­agers, pol­icy-mak­ers and other key per­son­nel”.
