With the support and encouragement of the Faculty and the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), the LL.M. (Maritime Law) programme, for law graduates, together with its companion programme, the Graduate Diploma in Maritime Law and Arbitration (GDMLA), for non-lawyers, has been offered by NUS Law since 2008. Students enrolled for the LL.M. degree are required to take 40-44 credits of courses; to obtain the LL.M. (Maritime Law) at least 24 of these credits must be taken from the Maritime Law subject grouping. The curriculum must also include two compulsory courses, Carriage of Goods by Sea (5 credits) AND Charterparties (5 credits). Students from a non-common law background will be required to read one common law module, Singapore Common Law of Contract (4 credits), as part of the credit requirement, unless exemption is granted. There is no mandatory dissertation requirement, although students with an interest in pursuing their own independent research may choose to take a directed research paper (4 credits) as part of the degree programme.
