Charter Party Drafting

List of courses offered

The course will be executed on request.



The course is aimed at employees at shipowners, operators, charterers and brokers who are exposed to charter parties either through contract negotiations or post-fixture work.



The course will have a practical approach to the subject so that the lessons can be directly applied in the participants' daily work. Specific clauses from the participants will also be discussed during the seminar.

  • Contract interpretation under English law
  • The anatomy of a charter party clause
  • Battle of forms
  • Definitions and references
  • Do's and don'ts
  • Agreements to agree
  • Describing the shipowners' and charterers' duties
