In the maritime shipping industry, the Master of the vessel is often mentioned in cases, occasionally as a party and frequently in obiter dicta and is discussed in the secondary sources and reviews; however, there are usually not too many references available to follow for many interesting points. In this publication by Informa the authors have placed in a single book a survey of the law affecting the shipmaster within the jurisdictions in which he finds himself and his vessel.
Note that the present volume is neither about how to be a shipmaster nor about the practice of shipmastering to the top standards - it is a book placing the Master in context of shipping law, regulation, custom, and practice both domestically and internationally in the different legal domains in which he might be examined. The topics addressed in this volume include the doctrines of the "Law of the Shipmaster" and the major domestic laws that commonly govern the master of the vessel in the UN States and the IMO; Principal References; Charter parties; Constitutions; Maritime Statutes; List of Acronyms; Convention and Codes. In short, this is a must-have publication for the practicing lawyers and for the students.
