The Master: An Endangered Species? Responsibilites and Liabilites in Today's Climate
Venue: Le Centre Sheraton Montreal Hotel, Ballroom, Level 4
Since the days of old, the Master has played a pivotal role in shipping practice and maritime law. Once a figure of great authority, the focus has shifted and the Master has now become a figure of great liabilities, including criminal liability. With the advent of autonomous vessels, the focus is shifting again, and the Master seems to be in danger of disappearing altogether.
