Admiralty Claims, the latest addition to British Shipping Laws, fills an obvious gap in shipping law commentary by presenting a comprehensive single-volume treatment of admiralty claims aimed at practitioners.
  • Covers the rules and principles peculiar to admiralty claims and explains their relationship with related areas of substantive and adjectival law.
  • Investigates the theoretical underpinnings of the subject, in order to enhance understanding and to indicate novel lines of enquiry.
  • Contains a treatment in terms of detail and theoretical and practical methodology which is clearly superior to currently available treatments.
  • Offers an in-depth treatment of the whole of Admiralty Claims and jurisdiction.
  • Combines both a principled and a practical approach.
  • Highlights and explains the distinction between admiralty and ordinary claims rules.
  • Incorporates discussion of international conventions, European Union law and the expected effects of Brexit.
  • Has been written by two of the leading UK academics in maritime law.
