Students whose comments are included in the Tulane Maritime Law Journal, Volume 38, will present them Sept. 6 at a session sponsored by the Journal along with the Admiralty & Maritime Law Committee of the American Bar Association’s Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section.
The event is being hosted by Phelps Dunbar at the firm’s New Orleans office, 365 Canal St., Suite 2000. Presentations start at 5:30 p.m. and will be followed by a reception.
“This is an excellent opportunity for our students to share their research with leading admiralty practitioners, in New Orleans and across the country,” Dean David Meyer said. “It represents the exceptionally close and strong relationship between Tulane Law School and the maritime bar.”
Six students are scheduled to make presentations:
- Phoebe Hathorn on “Cross-Border Insolvency in the Maritime Context: The United States’ Universalism Versus Singapore’s Continued Territorialism”
- Imran Naeemullah on “Strong Headwinds: Statutes, Responsibility-Shifting and Public Policy Continue to Frustrate Indemnity Agreements in the Offshore Oil and Gas Industry”
- Michael Dehart on “Revamping the Harbor Maintenance Tax”
- Katherine Clements on “Novel Charters: Lifting the Shelter in Order to Protect Injured Third Parties Against Insolvent Charterers”
- Caroline Frilot on “Crisis Averted: The Supreme Court Rejects a Subjective Vessel Status Test in Lozman v. City of Riviera Beach”
- Yaakov Adler on “Situs Unraveled: Evaluating Methods for Determining Whether an Injury Site Qualifies as an LHWCA § 903(a) ‘Other Adjoining Area’ ”
