MSPC New Member – Malta Maritime Law Association

Date: 10/03/2015

We are pleased to announce that Malta Maritime Law Association has recently become a new member of the MSPC.

The Malta Maritime Law Association (MMLA) is a non-profit making voluntary organization which was set up in 1994 with the aim to promote the study and advancement of maritime law and to assist in the promotion of the unification of maritime and mercantile law and practice of different nations. The MMLA, even though a law association, is composed of members from the various sectors in the maritime environment and thus provides a forum for the discussion of topical matters in the maritime field.

The MMLA reflects a high degree of maritime legal expertise, also through its affiliation with the Comité Maritime International (CMI), the oldest international organization in the maritime field formally established in 1897 with the aim to contribute to the unification of maritime law in all its aspects. Through the participation of the MMLA at high profile CMI meetings Malta is represented and can make its voice heard at the negotiating and drafting table of very important international maritime legal instruments.

With its expertise the Association plays a key role in ensuring that the Maltese maritime legislative and regulatory infrastructure is constantly updated, revised, and improved in a pro-active and well researched manner, in order to enhance qualitative standards as well as to further consolidate Malta’s pre-eminent position as an international maritime service centre.

Instrumental in this context is the Maritime Law Advisory Council (MLAC) which was set up in 2002 as the result of an agreement between the MMLA and the then Malta Maritime Authority. Established as a research and development agency, the MLAC acts as a consultant and advisor to the Merchant Shipping Directorate and fosters channels of communication between government and industry. 

With the aim to establish itself as a real debating society, the MMLA regularly organizes seminars and study workshops lending itself as a forum of discussion on topical issues in the maritime legal context. 

The current President of the MMLA is Dr. Ann Fenech.
