On 24 April 2024, the IOPC Funds hosted a group of students from the International Maritime Law Institute (IMLI) in its London offices. The students, numbering 68, are studying for a Master’s Degree in International Maritime Law.

Deputy Director and Head of Claims Department, Liliana Monsalve, and Senior Claims Manager, Chiara Della Mea, delivered presentations to the students across two sessions.

Both sessions focused on the practical aspects of claims management emphasising the importance of allocating adequate resources not only to handle claims efficiently but also to assist claimants in the submission of their claims. The presentations also stressed the importance of maintaining constant and transparent communication with stakeholders throughout the handling of an incident and concluded by addressing some of the challenges faced by the Secretariat in recent cases.

The students actively participated and demonstrated a keen interest in the discussions, asking several questions at the end of each session.

IMLI, established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to provide advanced education in international maritime law, is based in Malta.

The IOPC Funds regularly give lectures to students of maritime law from IMLI and other universities as part of its efforts to enhance awareness and understanding of the international liability and compensation regime for oil pollution.
