By Suchitthra Vasu

From the Foreword:

"Shipping Law may be thought by some to be a narrow branch of the law. But in fact it encompasses large tracts of private law overlaid with international conventions as any visitor to the Admiralty and Commercial Courts in London will discover. Each area of shipping law requires its own specialist text. The new entrant into the business of shipping and international trade, anxious to have some particular area of shipping law explained to him or her, may well have to consult several textbooks before being able to find what he or she is looking for. The value of"Shipping Law for Business People" is that it contains within one volume an easily accessible introduction to each of the many areas of private law which make up shipping law together with an explanation of the role and purpose of the applicable international convention....She (Suchitthra) is to be congratulated in putting into one volume a compendious and concise account of the essentials of shipping law." - The Honourable Mr. Justice Teare, The Royal Courts of Justice, London

From the Editor:

"...This book, ‘Shipping Law for Business People' by Suchitthra Vasu is both an ideal introduction to the world of shipping law, as well as a useful reference book for business people to have on their bookshelves. It is wide in scope, and gives the reader a useful starting point, when faced with uncertainty. Used correctly, it will aid the reader to set out the markers required to understand the issues at hand, and also to appreciate when lawyers should be instructed...The book has been written in the author's usual easy reading style, which makes it a pleasure to read. In the process, the acquisition of knowledge is made simple and painless..." - Dato' Jude P Benny, Editor of Shipping Law for Business People


"This book is a very useful guide to the main elements of shipping law that any business person unfamiliar with the subject needs to know. In a few succinct pages it covers the whole spectrum, from trading terms, to cargo liability, to salvage, to mortgages. It enables the business person to better understand the main legal principles, so giving greater confidence when discussing legal issues with advisers, colleagues and counter parties. As a useful birds eye view, it enables the business person to identify where he needs to build up greater specialist knowledge to suit his requirements. A much needed book." - Nick Sansom, Director, Charles Taylor Mutual Management (Asia) Pte. Ltd.

"...business people and young lawyers beginning in the profession can often seem a daunting and difficult area as the applicable principles, concepts and terminology are usually unfamiliar. It is made more difficult by the fact that the information and source data relevant to Shipping Law is disparate by nature." - Robert C. Springall, Partner at Holman Fenwick Willlan

With more than 75% of the world's trade is carried by sea, Shipping Law is almost a must for every business people, including lawyers who wish to venture into this industry, to understand and comprehend how such law can affect their business and/or practice.

Written in an easy to read style that provides a clear and general overview of the diverse range of topics, Shipping Law for Business People is a condensed, compact version of all the finer technicalities of Shipping Law. A succinct book for all corporate entities that engage in global trade to digest the salient points of the international conventions and treatise of the International Maritime Organization. Information on the collection of evidence for marine surveyors, insurers and other shipping professionals is also covered.
