This programme is dedicated to the Indian and global audience. With the advent of globalization and also with the growth of the world's economy, we have witnessed significant growth in trade, both land based and ocean based. It is important to note that a majority of the international trade is conducted through the seas and oceans of our planet. Maritime law that governs trade related aspects on the high seas has gained significant importance in the past few years. The subject has not been given due importance in India, although India having a vast coastline and having almost all of its trade through the seas and oceans. Maritime law practice has seen significant growth in the past few years, which has made law universities to take note of this vital practice of law. Unfortunately, not a single law university, be it a national law university or a traditional law university, has launched high quality diploma programmes on Maritime Law.
