2012 Insight programme released
The full programme for the four-day course "An Insight into Transport Law and Insurance" has been published on our website.
Members of the UK P&I Club who attend this course benefit from a significant discount on the regular price, effectively supplying delegate places at cost.
The Insight course which runs from Tuesday 2nd to Friday 5th October this year 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 in this field.
The key areas of marine risk and liability are reviewed including hull, P&I, FD& D, ship management, through transport liabilities, agency and war risks.
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 P&I, Defence, through transport and intermediary liability businesses.
The Insight team provide interactive and practical participation in the topics they cover with workshops on key claims and liability issues including cargo, personal injury claims, charterparty issues, collisions, pollution and dock damage, ports and terminal liabilities.
Past students have found the social aspects of this course an invaluable networking opportunity. This broad study programme is complemented by a social events including a formal course dinner, a bus tour of London, and a river cruise along the Thames to the National Maritime Museum and historic clipper ship Cutty Sark.

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.
