Aspatore legal title Understanding Maritime Law discusses applicable laws and the legal environment for oceangoing vessels, their owners, and their passengers and workers. Even for otherwise experienced lawyers, maritime law can have an unforeseen host of complications. A large body of international waters with few marked boundaries makes jurisdiction a tricky subject, and the codes to address these issues are often very different from U.S. law. Matters such as personal injury, property damage, and regulatory compliance take on new aspects under the auspices of laws such as the Jones Act, the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea, and the Carriage of Goods By Sea Act.

Practitioners must understand the intricacies of these laws, many originating before U.S. law was written, and they must identify how those laws apply today. In Understanding Maritime Law, top lawyers discuss this practice area, both in detail and from a wide perspective, examining maritime law as it developed and as it stands now. These experts also offer strategies for both compliance and defense. Lawyers hoping to specialize in maritime law will find this book a useful starting point, and specialists will find it a good refresher.
