La Fondation Albert Lilar
The Foundation Albert Lilar was founded on 4th February 1977 by the family of the late Albert Lilar, who was a former Belgian President of the Comité Maritime International and a very prominent maritime lawyer in Antwerp. The goal of the foundation is to encourage the study of maritime law both on a national and an international level and every three years the foundation awards a Prize to the author of a scientific work that was recently published and that is considered by the Board of Directors to have great merit and to serve the unification of maritime law or the development of comparative maritime law.

You will find hereafter the message of the foundation inviting authors on maritime law to send their contribution to the Secretariat of the Comité Maritime International.
The CMI would of course wish that its members participate in great number as candidates for the Prize.
