Shipping law 2014
Foreword by Michele White General Counsel,
The law applies in some form to every aspect of our lives and
this is especially so in shipping because shipping is such an
international and complex business.
Nearly all practical documents of an international nature
involved with shipping business are based on English law and a vast
majority of international contracts of sale of commodities and the
contracts of their carriage are governed by English law.
Shipping Law covers many areas of wet and dry law.
Legal aspects of charterparties and bills of lading are examined
and conventions on the carriage of goods by sea are discussed. Ship
ownership and Admiralty jurisdiction, general average, salvage,
towage, collision, dispute resolution and limitation of liability
are some of the legal issues considered in this book.
Problems and disputes will arise in all aspects of shipping
business and so Shipping Law will be of great value to all
professionals who are involved in the business of shipping.
