IMLI`s Facilities

Prof. David Attard (Director, IMLI) and the EU Commissioner Dr. Joe Borg in the Institute`s library



The Institute has a well-equipped maritime law library. The Library now has in its possession most of the major textbooks in the field of international maritime law. It constantly expands its acquisition of journals and is now moving towards including French texts and building a collection of different legal systems. The Library continues to attract book donations from law firms and distinguished personalities. It is worth noting that the collection of national maritime legislation donated by students each year is also expanding.
Students also have access to the Library of the University of Malta.
