by admin

Passenger ship safety will be the focus for the London Shipping Law Centre’s Cadwallader Symposium/Dinner at London’s Gibson Hall, Bishopsgate on Monday, November 26th.

Dr. Stephen Payne OBE, Past President of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, and Rear Admiral John Lang DL, former UK Chief Inspector at the Marine Accidents Investigation Board, will address the theme ‘From Titanic to Concordia: The Achilles Heel of Passenger Ships.’ They will cover lessons learned on the safety front, developments and problems which need to be tackled. Lord Clarke of Stone-cum-Ebony, the Centre’s Vice President, will chair the session and invite questions from guests. It will be the twelfth Cadwallader and the first to combine drinks, dinner and discussion.

The proceedings will begin with a champagne reception in the Garden Room, followed by discussion and dinner in the Main Hall. Registration forms for individual and corporate tickets can be downloaded from www.shippinglbc.com. A range of sponsorship packages are available.
