Maritime Law 5th ed
Now in its fifth edition, this authoritative guide covers all of the core aspects of maritime law in one distinct volume. Maritime Law is written by a team of leading academics and practitioners, each expert in their own field. Together, they provide clear, concise and fully up-to-date coverage of topics ranging from bills of lading to arrest of ships, all written in an accessible and engaging style.
As English law is heavily relied on throughout the maritime world, this book is grounded in English law whilst continuing to analyse the key international conventions currently in force. Besides discussion of the relevant case law decisions made since the last edition, brand new coverage includes:
- A new section on how smart contracts enable marine insurance.
- Changes to the Merchant Shipping (Registration of Ships) Regulations 1993, including the Merchant Shipping (Registration of Ships) (Amendment) (EU exit) Regulations 2019.
- Discussion of the Incoterms 2020 which are available for incorporation into sale contracts from 1st January 2020.
- Updates on litigation and shipping sustainability issues as well as amendments to the Admiralty Civil Procedure Rules.
This book is a comprehensive reference source for students, academics and legal practitioners worldwide, especially those new to maritime law or a particular field therein.
