2013 Insight course
The 2013 Insight into Transport Law and Insurance course is taking place from Tuesday 1st – Friday 4th October at the London offices of Thomas Miller. The four day course is aimed at executives and managerial staff either in the early stages of their careers or without specialist insurance and claims experience.
By combining topical issues such as piracy and sanctions with coverage of more established issues in liability and insurance, Insight is also useful for those who wish to broaden or refresh their knowledge. The combined expertise of the Insight team from the Thomas Miller managed clubs gives a well-rounded perspective on maritime issues. Presenters are drawn from TT Club, UK P&I Club, Defence and intermediary liability businesses. The Insight team provides interactive and practical participation in the topics they cover with workshops on key claims and liability issues including cargo, personal injury claims, ports and terminal liabilities, charterparty issues, collisions, pollution and dock damage. The course is also an opportunity for delegates to get to meet their Club contacts. The four day course has a complimentary time table of social events from a formal first night dinner to an informal Club contacts evening on Wednesday 2nd October. Space on the course is limited, to reserve your place please fill out the attached application form, or for more information please contact; Jenny Lane or Natasha Carini.
