Maritime Law is a key unit for those interested in the legal underpinnings of world trade, commerce and development.
Maritime law examines the fundamental legal framework for the conduct of international and domestic maritime trade and commerce. Maritime law has ancient roots in Greek and Roman laws; but at the same time is fresh, contemporary and very responsive to market needs.
Topics addressed by the unit include the scope and purpose of sea carriage documents; the role of international maritime transport regimes; the changing laws with respect to intermodal transport; the long-standing laws of general average and salvage; the particular laws with respect to marine insurance and the special body of laws in relation to ships (admiralty law).
