The Marine & Shipping Law Unit (MASLU) is a community of scholars within the TC Beirne School of Law at The University of Queensland. We aim to achieve international recognition for scholarship, research and consultative skills in maritime law, international law of the sea, and related areas.

MASLU promotes teaching and research in all aspects of maritime law and the law of the sea. We provide the legal community, law students, and the marine and shipping industries with detailed information and specialist expertise relating to developments in, and the application of, maritime law. MASLU's role also includes collaborating with other marine centres on multi-disciplinary projects, and liaising with legal and marine scholars from around the world.

Each year, the Law School offers a number of courses and seminars in maritime law and related areas. Students can enrol in courses either as part of a postgraduate degree at The University of Queensland or any other recognized university, or on a 'once-off' basis through the Executive Education program.
