Greece Insight course 2011 (Editorial: 16th June)
Following the continuing success of its main Insight Course in London, a second course is to be held this year at the Athens Hilton Hotel on the 6th to the 7th December.
"An insight into transport law and insurance" is a practical, extensive two-day course for the non-insurance specialist. It is aimed at executives and managerial staff who are in the early stages of their careers and those who do not have specialist insurance and claims experience. It has also proved useful to more experienced shipping executives who wish to broaden or refresh their knowledge.
Places on the course are limited and priority in applications will be given to Club Members.
The two-day course will opens with a maritime and transport industry insurance overview and then refines its focus on to individual areas of cover such as hull, P&Im FD&D and war risks. Practical issues in cargo and personal injury claims as well as dealing with collisions, pollution and dock damage will be addressed.
The course is structured to cover these topics through a mixture of group work, presentations and case studies. Supporting course documentation is supplied electronically as an aid to subsequent reference and use in day to day work.
In addition to the study benefits of the course it presents and excellent opportunity to mix with others working primarily in the Greek marine and transport community.
The course brochure gives full information on the course and includes an easy to complete applications form. Alternatively to find out more about the course and to reserve a place contact Jenny Whitehead (email:firstname.lastname@example.org

Ireland - Time Bars
Statutory time bars are governed by the Statute of Limitations Act 1957 as amended by the Statute of Limitations (Amendment) Act 1991 and 2000. The statutory limitation periods cannot be extended by agreement. The issue of whether a claim is statute-barred is however a defence that must be raised by a Defendant once proceedings are issued. A court will not consider this issue on its own volition. A defendant may be estopped from relying upon the Statute of Limitations as a defence if their conduct renders it unjust to permit them to do so.
Members will recall that substantial increases in the liability limits set by the 1976 London Convention on Limitation of Liability for Maritime Claims (LLMC) as amended by the 1996 LLMC Protocol, were agreed by the IMO Legal Committee in 2012.
