On 1 April 1974 the late Frank Dethridge, the senior partner in the
Melbourne firm of Mallesons, convened a meeting of colleagues to
propose the formation of the Maritime Law Association of Australia. A
formal resolution to that effect was adopted by the meeting. This issue
of the Journal is therefore published almost exactly 25 years after the
formation of the Association at that historic meeting.
A delegation from New Zealand attended the Annual General
Meeting in Melbourne in 1977; and the meeting resolved to admit the
New Zealanders as a separate branch and to adopt the Association's
present name.
Since 1974 the Association has grown from a handful of members to
several hundred, including both lawyers and non-lawyers. It holds an
annual conference, publishes this Journal twice a year and a regular
newsletter, involves itself in law  reform  at both  national and
international levels, holds educational workshops and seminars, and
encourages the formal study of maritime law at University level.
Branches in each Australian State and New Zealand hold their own
activities.
We cannot predict the Association's course over the next 25 years.
Hopefully it will continue to foster the study and reform of maritime
law, and to provide a congenial environment for debate within the
maritime community of our two countries.
