"Stress Testing the Law of the Sea": Members of 20 Essex Street participating in conference on topical issue of law of the sea in London

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

Several members of Chambers are participating in a two-day conference on law of the sea jointly hosted by the Transnational Law Institute at King’s College London and the Berkeley Law of the Sea Institute, on Friday 30 September and Saturday 1 October. The full program is available here

Penelope Nevill is commentating on the keynote address by Judge Vladimir Golitsyn (of the International Tribunal on the Law of the Sea) on settlement of international disputes concerning the use of natural resources. Judge Golitsyn will be introduced by Professor David Caron, who is also a member of Chambers and a judge on the Iran-US Claims Tribunal.

In addition, Dr Kate Parlett will be presenting on the scope of jurisdiction of UNCLOS tribunals, notably in light of the recent decision in the case between the Philippines and China concerning the South China Sea. Professor Caron will also present on "baselines and flashpoints: the changing geopolitics of the law of the sea”. Professor Guglielmo Verdirame and Belinda McRae are also moderating panels, along with pupil barrister Dr Philippa Webb, all on issues relating to dispute resolution in law of the sea.

Members of 20 Essex St act as counsel in a wide range of law of the sea disputes, concerning maritime delimitations, natural resources, and marine environmental harm. For example, Penelope Nevill was counsel to the United Kingdom in its recent Annex VII arbitration with Mauritius concerning the Chagos Islands; Kate Parlett is acting for Costa Rica in its maritime delimitation dispute with Nicaragua before the International Court of Justice; and Philippa Webb is representing Kenya in its maritime dispute with Somalia, also before the International Court of Justice.
