Mr Jeremy Joseph, on behalf of IMSML delivered a presentation on Expert Evidence from A Maritime Perspective at the 2nd IPBA ASIA-PAC Arbitration Day Jointly Hosted with KLRCA on the 8th Sept 2016.
The September 1 event was an event that will linger for a long time in our memories as it afforded us all the opportunity to interact with the honorable minister and bare our minds on issues bordering on our industry as well as the aspirations of our great society. It was a wonderful networking session for us all as it also gave us the opportunity to build new bridges of professional relationships across different sub-sectors of our industry. Opportunities, like this, to fraternize with the who-is-who in the industry do not come often, I’m glad we all made maximum use of it to collaborate and share ideas about ways of advancing our individual careers as well as building for ourselves a formidable industry.
Monday 11th April was a milestone in the careers of maritime industry players in Malaysia. On this date, International Malaysian Society of Maritime Law (IMSML) was launched by our Patron and the former Chief Justice of Malaysia, Yg Bhg Tun Zaki Bin Tun Azmi.
Prior to this time, maritime industry players in Malaysia operated independently. Everyone worked in isolation and operated their rules. Needless to say, this made it difficult for the maritime industry players in Malaysia to have a common voice and pursue their common interest. With the launching of International Malaysian Society of Maritime Law (IMSML), it’s the dawn of a new era for maritime industry players in Malaysia. Part of the reasons for the formation of this organization is to bring maritime industry players in Malaysia together under one umbrella. By so doing, they will be able to put heads together to address the problems confronting their sector. Among other things, the International Malaysian Society of Maritime Law (IMSML) is expected to pursue the interest of practitioners of the maritime sector while providing guidelines to uphold the best practices in the sector.
