The use of containers to ship cargo has revolutionized the shipping industry, but also introduced growing concerns over security. With 12 million containers entering American ports each year, officials have yet to devise a sure way of screening out contraband and potential terrorist threats.
Tulane Law Professors Robert Force and Martin Davies will talk about some of the legal implications of the container revolution and responses to concerns about maritime security at a special reception in New York City on Nov. 12. The event, hosted by Clyde & Co and partner John Woods (L ’80), will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Tulane Maritime Law Center and is open to all alumni and friends of Tulane Law School.
The event is set for 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Clyde & Co offices in The Chrysler Building, 405 Lexington Ave.
Martin Davies is the Director of the Center and Robert Force is the Niels F. Johnsen Chair of Maritime Law. Tulane Law School Dean David Meyer will also be in attendance to welcome alumni and friends.
Joining John Woods on the Host Committee are K. Blythe Daly (L ’08), Vincent Foley (L ’96), Jeremy Herschaft (L ’04), Niels M. Johnsen (A&S ’67), LeRoy Lambert (L ’83), Anthony Mavronicolas (L ’78), and Lindsay Sakal (NC ’05, L ’09).
