Welcome at Swiss Maritime Association (SMLA)
The SMLA is a non-profit association with the purpose of supporting the development of Swiss and international maritime law.
Since the 1960s the SMLA served (as a department of the Swiss Maritime Shipping Association (SVS)) as national platform of the Comté Maritime International (CMI) and made valuable contributions to the development of international conventions on the law of the sea.
Since September 2014 the SMLA is an independent association and is therefore now a direct member of the CMI.
As a newly established association the SMLA is happy to welcome new members from all over Switzerland and the neighbouring foreign countries. As a member of the SMLA you will benefit from regular information about the current developments and results in national and international maritime law. Furthermore you will get the possibility to actively work on projects of the SMLA (and therefore of the CMI) and influence these projects through your input.
Register today as a member of the SMLA and actively help shaping the development of the Swiss and international maritime law!
