The mission of the Maritime Law Association of Slovenia is to study maritime law, to enhance and strengthen its development and reputation, to collaborate with state bodies in the formation and enactment of maritime legal regulations, to collaborate in the efforts for the international unification of maritime law, to facilitate the harmonisation of Slovene maritime law with the legal order of the European Union, and to assist and advise individuals and legal entities in issues related to maritime law.
The Slovene Association of Transport Sciences was established in 1996 at the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport. The mission of the Association is to provide connections among experts and researchers in the transport sector and science. Since 1997, a strategic task of the Association has been to regularly organise, together with the Faculty, the International Conference on Transport Sciences (ICTS). The Association strives to enhance the development of transport science and to encourage graduates from all degree programmes of the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport and related faculties as well as individuals and legal entities from the transport sector and public administration to become active members of the Association. The main activities of the Association include:
- organisation of annual international scientific conferences on transport science – ICTS,
- organisation of conferences, workshops, and summer schools,
- integration of transport science and practice, primarily in higher education and scientific research activities, and
- cooperation of the Association with similar associations in Europe and worldwide.
The Academic Sailing Club of the Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport was established in November 2007. The core activity of the Club is to promote sailing and maritime sports in general as a style of life and work for future seafarers. The first step that the Club took was participation in sailing regattas, which attracted the attention of the students, the broader local community, and maritime sector companies. The next step was the organisation of lectures and sailing courses, primarily designed for the students and Faculty staff but also offered to the students and staff of the University of Ljubljana, and all lovers of the sea.
