1 April 2019 13:30pm – 17:30pm
King's College London

The first technical workshop of the London International Boundary Conference will take place at King's College on 1 April 2019. An initiative of Marbdy Consulting Ltd, the workshop will provide a very practical approach to maritime boundary delimitation covering the topics of baselines, equidistance lines, and relevant circumstances leading to equitable boundaries. This workshop is a general introduction to maritime boundaries, and no prior knowledge is needed. It is suitable for lawyers, diplomats, hydrographers, students and indeed anybody with an interest in maritime boundaries. This workshop is intended to be suitable for active participation. It will consist by a mix of presentations and practical exercises including a fictitious boundary scenario.

Delegates:
•     will benefit from a technical perspective of the practical approach of maritime dispute principles before exploring an integrated approach to such disputes within the conference itself;

•     will have plenty of opportunity for discussion.

Facilitated by:
Dr Robin Cleverly, technical experts in the field and the co-author of "A Practitioner’s Guide to Maritime Boundary Delimitation", OUP 2016
