The Law and Practice in Admiralty Matterrs opens with a consideration of the scope of admiralty action as set out in the Supreme Court Act 1981. Concepts peculiar to admiralty, such as maritime and statutory liens, and peculiarities of procedure under Practice Direction 61 are covered in detail.

As well as covering procedural issues for court based dispute resolution, difficult areas relating to arbitration in practice are also addressed.

A distinguishing feature of this work is the extensive consideration of the case law of commonwealth jurisdictions.The comparative approach is particularly illuminating where there is an absence of clarity in English law such as in the areas of post arrest applications and the interaction between admiralty arrest and insolvency proceedings.

This new work is an essential addition to the literature on this area tackling difficult areas in detail and drawing in authorities from Commonwealth jurisdictions to illuminate gaps in English law.

  • Unique in its detailed treatment of maritime arbitration
  • Full consideration of the principles underpinning admiralty law
  • Difficult and unsettled points considered with illustrations of relevant case law from Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa.
  • Appendix includes Rules of Court and Practice Directives providing practitioners with a handy reference source
