An addition to the Lloyd’s Shipping Law Library, this new book provides a detailed and practical analysis of the law and practice applicable to bills of lading before, during and after shipment.

It is co-authored by two leading specialist barristers and a Commercial Court judge who have wide experience of bills of lading both in practice and in the context of litigation.

This new book provides:

  • an introduction to the history of bills of lading
  • in-depth information on the form, issuing, and transfer of bills of lading
  • negotiation of bills
  • thorough analysis of the rights and liabilities which arise from statements in the bill:
    • its effect on ownership of the goods
    • the rights to delivery
    • the carrier’s right to deliver
    • including rights of suit in contract, tort and bailment
  • a detailed consideration of the Hague and Hague-Visby rules
  • an overview of the primary remedies
  • conflict of laws issues and procedural matters which arise in litigation involving bills of lading
  • detailed legal analysis with discussion of the use of bills of lading in practice and of the practicalities of litigation involving bills of lading
  • conflict of laws issues and procedural matters which arise in litigation involving bills of lading.

The bill’s contractual function is also considered in depth as are both contractual and non-contractual claims arising out of bills of lading.
