Book Description

In this well-established textbook, Simon Baughen expertly covers the whole spectrum of English shipping law, placing the highly specialised rules of shipping in a commercial context and relating them to the general principles of contract and tort law. The book’s accessible narrative and useful glossary of key terms will especially benefit students new to shipping law or from non-law backgrounds.

In-depth commentary on judicial decisions and well-balanced coverage and analysis of recent and key cases, such as The Longchamp , Spar Shipping v Grand China Logistics , The Maersk Tangier , provide an up-to-date reference for all students on Shipping Law courses. The comprehensive overview of topics also ensures that the book is ably suited to course use, including discussion of such areas as:

    • Bills of lading
    • Charterparties
    • Salvage
    • Marine Pollution
    • Jurisdiction
    • Choice of Law
    • Arbitration
    • Accidents and collisions

Fully updated throughout, this seventh edition provides an invaluable source of reference and will be of use to both students and to those in practice.
