Get involved in Young CMI
Young CMI wishes to attract young maritime lawyers to CMI’s work for the unification of maritime and transport law. Young CMI organizes events aimed at young maritime lawyers from around the world, during which they can get to know each other and can contribute to the debate about various topics in maritime and transport law whether as speaker or from the audience. You are already a member of Young CMI if you have joined a National Maritime Law Association which is affiliated to the CMI.
The kick-off events of Young CMI took place at the 2008 CMI Conference at Athens, where both a breakfast seminar and a ‘night on the town’ were staged. In 2009, during the CMI Colloquium at Rotterdam a new seminar dedicated to the Rotterdam Rules was organized as well as a party at 100 meters above sea level on top of the Euromast. Young CMI invites you to attend the 2010 CMI Colloquium at Buenos Aires and to participate fully in its activities.
Young CMI also wishes to encourage and inspire young maritime lawyers from Maritime Law Associations around the world to organize similar events for themselves on a regional basis. A good example is the joint initiative of the MLA’s of Belgium, England, France, Germany and The Nether¬lands in 2006 to organize a two-day seminar for young maritime lawyers in June of each year. Since its successful launch in London in 2006, this seminar has rotated from Rotterdam in 2007 to Antwerp in 2008, to Hamburg in 2009 and Paris in 2010.
