Daniel Owen provides training seminars on marine law to both lawyers and non-lawyers.

His training is designed to help:

  • those who are new to the marine scene and in need of a concise introduction to the law
  • those who feel confused about the latest laws and regulations and need some clarity
  • those who already know the marine scene but want to get up to speed on some specialist areas
Daniel is well-versed in explaining the law to non-lawyers, and always aims to explain things as clearly as possible. Training sessions can be provided at Fenners Chambers in Cambridge or at the client’s offices.

If you think some training would be useful for you or your organisation, please get in touch with Daniel Owen to discuss your needs.

Examples of subjects covered by training seminars:

  • international law of the sea, including the territorial sea, exclusive economic zone (EEZ) and continental shelf
  • EU environmental law, including the Marine Strategy Framework Directive
  • marine protected areas, including Marine Conservation Zones and Natura 2000 sites
  • fisheries, including domestic law, the EU’s Common Fisheries Policy and international law
  • marine planning under the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009
  • marine licensing


‘I was extremely pleased with the way the seminar went and very grateful for the way in which you managed to deliver a relatively dry subject with such enthusiasm.’
Mr Phil Durrant, Managing Director, Gardline Environmental Ltd., Great Yarmouth, March 2013

‘I found Daniel’s approach and explanation a breath of fresh air – it was very clear and made what can appear to be inaccessible Directives much more approachable.’
Ms Caroline Chambers, Policy Manager, Marine Ecological Surveys Ltd., Bath, March 2013
