42nd INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF THE COMITÉ MARITIME INTERNATIONAL
In joint sessions with the MLAUS Spring Committee Meetings
Half a century since its last conference on US soil, the CMI returns to New York City in May 2016 for its 42nd International Conference, hosted by the Maritime Law Association of the United States. The conference has been convened by the CMI mainly to reach consensus on proposed revisions to the York-Antwerp Rules relating to General Average and to discuss proposed CMI Guidelines on General Average - for submission to the New York Assembly.
But this will also be a very special gathering of kindred maritime lawyers and industry players – unprecedented in that the various working committees of the CMI and the MLA US will hold joint sessions to share knowledge and experience in the most pressing issues of modern shipping law.
