Admiralty & Shipping

  • 16 December 2019

Admiralty and Shipping law is a body of law that governs nautical issues and private maritime disputes. Admiralty law consists of both domestic law on maritime activities and private international law governing the relationships between private parties operating or using ocean-going ships. Admiralty law is “wet” (relating to salvage, collisions, ship arrest, towage, liens and limitation) and “dry” (carriage of goods, people and marine insurance).
