Carriage of Goods by Sea 2ed, 2011  $375.00 

By Stephen R Girvin

  • The only practitioner title to provide a complete analysis of the law of carriage of goods by sea including topics such as limitation, admiralty claims and a maritime arbitration
  • Appendices include standard forms and legislation providing a complete resource in one volume
  • Includes detailed reference to and analysis of major recent House of Lords cases including The Achilleas (2008) and The Golden Victory (2007); and major appellate level cases including The Archimidis (2007), The Elli & The Frixos (2008), and The Reborn (2009); as well as a host of new cases decided at first instance

New to this edition

  • New coverage of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Carriage of Goods Wholly or Partly by Sea (Rotterdam Rules) which was signed since the publication of the first edition
  • Expanded treatment of bills of lading including updated references and extra detail throughout, such as coverage of the Conlinebill 2000 within discussion of liner bills of lading
  • New damages content added to chapters on voyage charterparties and time charterparties, including references to reported arbitration decisions of the LMAA

Arranged thematically and covering the entire breadth of the law of carriage of goods by sea, including bills of lading and charterparties, limitation, admiralty claims, and maritime arbitration, this book discusses the underlying principles of contract, agency, tort, and bailment as well as the business of carriage, and shippers' and carriers' obligations, rights and immunities.

The scope and application of the Rotterdam Rules is covered in a dedicated chapter, which guides the reader on this important international instrument which was signed in 2009, but is not yet in force. Coverage of the main provisions and changes to be implemented in accordance with the Rotterdam Rules also feature throughout.

The underlying principles to documents of carriage, international regulation, and the responsibilities and obligations of the skipper and carrier are all addressed in this single volume resource.

Readership: Legal practitioners in the maritime law field, professionals in the industry such as chartered shipbrokers, and postgraduate law students. The professional market includes those working for shipping companies and in other areas of the sector, particularly the Protection and Indemnity (P & I) Clubs and marine insurance.
