The Nicholas J. Healy Lectures on Admiralty Law takes place annually at New York University School. They commenced in 1992 with the aim of providing a forum for the scholarly consideration of maritime law and, delivered by expert academics and practitioners in the field, provide great insight into the development of admiralty law since then. This volume collects the seventh to thirteenth lectures, which were given from 2005 to 2015.
