Summary

Anyone who deals with shipping disputes requires access to a mass of source materials. These include international conventions, statutes and statutory instruments, arbitration rules, and the most commonly encountered bills of lading, charterparties, insurance clauses, guarantees and other contracts. Details of the parties to the international conventions are also required. The Shipping Law Handbook collects all this material in one convenient and easy-to-use volume.

The Handbook deals with the following areas:

  • arrest, jurisdiction and applicable law;        
  • arbitration;        
  • limitation of liability;        
  • cargo claims;        
  • collision;        
  • marine insurance;        
  • oil pollution;        
  • salvage, toward and general average;        
  • standard forms.

Each section has an introduction which gives a brief overview of the materials included, setting them in their context, and noting probably future developments. 

The Handbook has been fully revised for this sixth edition. New items include: the European Judgments Regulation (Recast) 2012, the LMAA Terms 2017, the Insurance Act 2015, the York-Antwerp Rules 2016, the Inter-Club Agreement 1996 (amended 2011), Barecon 2017, Congenbill 2016, NYPE 2015 and updated lists of parties to international conventions.
