Book Description: Shipping Law covers the whole spectrum of English shipping law. The book is designed both as an academic textbook and a practitioner handbook and is divided into three parts. Part one covers dry shipping, including cargo claims under bills of lading and waybills, issues relating to combined transport and international carriage by road, as well as disputes arising under both voyage and time charterparties. Part two tackles wet shipping topics such as salvage, collisions, marine pollution and general average. Part three concludes the book with a review of the jurisdictional and procedural issues that underpin both dry and wet shipping. Topics include tonnage limitation, jurisdiction, choice of law, arrest and Mareva injunctions. In this second edition, commentary has been significantly expanded in many areas and particular attention has been paid to new developments such as: The 1999 Arrest Convention, The Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999, the Court of Appeal decisions in The Hill Harmony, The Berge Sisar, and The Tychy. The book takes a structured and integrated approach to the highly specialised rules of shipping law, which are both placed in their commercial context and related to the general principles of English contract and tort law. Particular care is taken to help the student get to grips with the specialised terminology, which all too often proves a barrier to the understanding of this subject.
