About the Southeastern Admiralty Law Institute
On October 15, 1968, a meeting was held at the Grand Hotel at Point Clear, Alabama, for the purpose of organizing an Admiralty Law Institute to provide a forum for the discussion of admiralty and maritime law, and its practice and administration, among practitioners in the ports of the Southeastern United States. Regular membership in the organization is limited to attorneys admitted to practice in the states of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas and Maryland, who are interested in the practice of admiralty law. Attorneys from other states are eligible for non-resident membership, and any citizen of the United States who is not an attorney but who is engaged in a maritime or maritime-related occupation or activity is eligible for associate membership.
