There is a difference between knowledge and actionable knowledge. Knowledge that does not lead to an action or a positive change is just information!
Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration (SCMA) and Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, Singapore Branch (ICS SG) are extremely pleased that we have already made a start to create actionable knowledge sharing through this series — Legal & Commercial Perspectives. The first update was in November 2020 and we are pleased to bring the second edition in this series. Once again we bring in some recently decided maritime cases in Singapore and England with legal analysis from the lawyers representing the firms who successfully argued those very cases along with commercial maritime experts who will talk about the learnings and practically adapting them into commercial clauses and practices.
Come and join us in an enlightening and interesting discussion on SCMA-ICS SG Legal & Commercial Perspectives.
