A previous winner of the Comité Maritime International’s Albert Lilar Prize for the best shipping law book worldwide, EU Shipping Law is the foremost reference work for professionals in this area. This third edition has been completely revised to include developments in the competition/antitrust regime, new safety and environmental rules, and rules governing security and ports. It includes detailed commentary and analysis of almost every aspect of EU law as it affects shipping.


"Dr Power’s study is truly a vade mecum for shipping practitioners, combining analysis with copious citations of EU sources, such as Commission decisions or EU court rulings.

…Dr Power’s final chapter on Brexit makes a number of thought-provoking points and repays careful reading, especially his comments on safety and passenger rights.

Dr Power’s survey is truly remarkable for the breadth of its coverage, including ports, state aids and detailed survey of EU law on social legislation affecting seafarers, as well as particularly detailed and useful coverage of EU environmental maritime legislation – an area that this certain to become more important in the future.

Vincent Power’s EU Shipping Law is a truly monumental and magisterial work. It deserves a place on the shelves of any maritime practitioner."
