As an internationally recognised litigator with 25 years’ experience in maritime and transport law, and having advised on some of the most significant Australian and international maritime incidents, Michelle Taylor's recent appointment as President of Maritime Law Association of Australia and New Zealand (MLAANZ) provides true recognition of her standing in, and dedication to, the maritime legal community.
MLAANZ engages with new legislative initiatives in Australia and New Zealand, works with Comité Maritime International (CMI) to facilitate the unification and harmonisation of maritime international laws and consults on admiralty rules and practice. MLAANZ membership includes lawyers, judges, academics, insurers, government and defence agencies and members of the shipping industry.
Following her appointment, Michelle Taylor said, “I am delighted and deeply honoured to be appointed President of MLAANZ (especially on World Maritime Day). I am looking forward to working with the wonderful Board of MLAANZ, as well as the dedicated MLAANZ members to support the Australian and New Zealand maritime legal community.”
