What is EMLO?

The “European Maritime Law Organisation” (EMLO) was established to provide a neutral and independent forum for debate and research on issues of interest to those concerned with EU maritime affairs. We are an independent body and hold conferences and seminars on all aspects of EU maritime law, ranging from competition and trade to safety and the environment.

European Maritime Law group elects Vincent Power as chairman

Dr Power will succeed Lord Phillips in October when the organisation holds its annual conference. His term as chairman will be for an initial two years.

One of the key topics on the agenda at  Emlo’s Cyprus meeting this autumn will be the European Commission’s Consortia Bloc Exemption, and whether shipping lines should continue to benefit from special treatment when forming alliances, or be subject to the same competition rules as other industries.
