ABYC marine law symposium rescheduled

Publish date:

The American Boat and Yacht Council’s 2018 marine law symposium has been rescheduled to April 10 at the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, S.C., and the regular registration fee has been extended for a week. The prices will go up after March 30.

The symposium will have 15 speakers and five case studies on accidents and lawsuits that have implications for dealers, manufacturers, surveyors, accident investigators, expert witnesses and attorneys.

Attendees can learn when and how accidents are investigated, what those involved can legally obtain, find out what happens to the boat and more during a Q&A session with a marine investigator. The symposium will also provide information on insurance terms and limitations, what should be in a contract, liability, and how participants can protect their businesses against lawsuits.

Registration information can be found here.
