OverviewShipping Law covers the whole spectrum of English shipping law and is the only student text to address both wet and dry shipping law matters. It takes a structured and integrated approach to the highly specialised rules of shipping, which are placed in their commercial context and related to the general principles of English contract and tort law. This fifth edition offers a brand new section on arbitration, as well as detailed consideration of recent developments in law from the LOF 2011 and the 2010 Protocol to the HNS Convention. With in-depth commentary and analysis on recent important judical decisions of the Supreme Court in The Cendor Mopu, and of the Court of Appeal in The Eternity, The Wadi Sudr, The Kos, and The Eagle Valencia, this textbook presents fully-to-date and well-balanced coverage of key cases and is an essential reference source for both students and those in practice.
