Advanced Introduction to Maritime Law

Paul Todd

Written by leading scholar Paul Todd, this Advanced Introduction draws on the author’s decades of experience researching and teaching maritime law, offering a clear and concise introduction to the core areas of the field. In addition to providing a primer on the substance, it explains the worldwide applications of English law, and surveys the sources of law and how to locate them. It also highlights some of the difficulties in interpreting the law and pinpoints which individuals have been instrumental in doing so, and in making and developing the law.

Acclaim for Maritime Law:

‘This short book covers the sort of introductory background and contextual material that often has to be crammed into the first week or so of maritime commercial law courses studied in the UK (in particular). “Maritime Law” is treated broadly so as to include international sales and marine insurance, as well as traditional carriage and Admiralty issues. The book will particularly suit international students, unfamiliar with the common law system, and uses simple, colloquial – sometimes even conversational – language.’

Professor Nick Gaskell, University of Queensland, Australia
