Joseph A. Calamari Admiralty Law Society
The Admiralty Law Society was founded in 1975 by Professor Joseph A. Calamari, Alfred Will ’75 and Peter Clark ’75 to promote the study of Admiralty and Maritime Law. Today, our members and alumni fulfill this mission by presenting guest speakers from the admiralty and maritime field, biannually publishing the Admiralty Practicum, and by hosting an annual dinner that brings distinguished alumni and Society members together for an evening of networking, discussion and celebration. At its 2011 dinner, the Society honored professor Calamari’s contribution and commitment to the Law School and to the Society.
Managed and published by students in the Admiralty Law Society, the Admiralty Practicum features the production of the précis for the Society of Maritime Arbitrators’ cases. It distributes to prominent practitioners of admiralty and maritime law across the country.
