Maritime Law Answer Book provides answers to maritime law questions facing specialists and non-specialists alike, addressing issues that impact vessel owners, vessel bankers, and shippers of goods. Beyond examining traditional issues that arise generally in maritime disputes, such as choice of law and limitation of liability, this resource covers an array of U.S. regulatory issues ranging from promotional programs, such as the Maritime Security Program and coastwise trade regulation, to vessel financing considerations, environmental protection regulations, and criminal enforcement. The coverage is organized by the basic communities that come into contact with maritime law, such as vessel owners, bankers, and cargo shippers, and focuses on the kinds of questions members of those communities are likely to encounter in their daily practice. And while the material focuses on U.S. law and practice, the authors include some reference to U.K. law, which has significant influence on many practices, leases, and financial transactions.
