Dr Aleka Mandaraka-Sheppard (LLB, LLM, PhD, Dip.IArb), is a dually qualified lawyer (Greece and England) and was formerly a practising solicitor in the City of London, Head of the Shipping Law Unit, UCL, and Visiting Professor of Maritime law. She is the Founder and Chairman of the London Shipping Law Centre - Maritime Business Forum and practises as a Maritime Arbitrator and Mediator. Her passion has been in promoting risk management education since 1998 through the LSLC and privately to shipping companies in-house. This book was inspired by her teaching and practice in maritime law. Her students gave her great encouragement to write it and continue its editions.

In her early years of studies in the UK, apart from her interest in shipping, she carried out research for her Ph.D into organisational behaviour and published "The dynamics of aggression in women's prisons" (1986), which gave her insights into causes of conflict, ways of resolving difficult conflict situations, and the effect of regulations on deterring or aggravating misbehaviour. Her knowledge in this area has provided the backbone for her practice as a lawyer, educator, writer, arbitrator, mediator and risk management advisor."
