About MLAS

The Maritime Law Association of Singapore (MLAS) aims to promote the study and advancement of maritime law and its administration in Singapore, and to promote and consider with other associations proposals for the unification of maritime law and practice of different nations.

The MLAS is a member organization of the Comite Maritime International (CMI) a non-governmental international organization devoted to the same object of the unification of maritime law and is the only organization in Singapore entitled to attend the International Conferences of the CMI. At these international conferences, discussions take place between delegations sent by the maritime law associations around the world with the object of arriving at conclusions on issues of maritime law of the day for transmission to the governments of the association’s country or to international organizations such as the United Nations and the International Maritime Organisations. As a result, the CMI plays an active role in the initiation, promotion and review of international maritime conventions and model laws. The CMI is also the keeper of the York-Antwerp Rules on general average.

Members of the MLAS may participate in the development of maritime law, for example, by making their personal views or the view of their industry sector known to the MLAS, who will endeavour to present a balanced view of maritime interests in Singapore to the CMI and other associations concerned with the making or development of maritime law. The MLAS also organizes talks and seminars from time to time to promote discussion of issues of maritime law.
