Maritime and Transportation Law is given as an elective course within the framework of the law program at the Department of Law, Stockholm University. Admission to the course can also be granted to applicants with significant practical experience within the field of maritime and transportation law. Exchange students admitted by the department are also given access to the course.

The course is cross-disciplinary in so far as the relevant legal framework comprises rules from international law, public law and civil law. The intention is to provide the student with an overview of this sector from a legal perspective. As compared to the law programme’s compulsory courses, the study of maritime and transportation law imparts both broader and deeper legal knowledge. Greater breadth is achieved since maritime and transportation law is not included in the study of compulsory courses; greater depth results since maritime and transportation law adds yet a dimension to the subject areas studied within the compulsory courses. An example of this is civil law, where maritime and transportation law rules interact with the rules of sales law and insurance law.
