New Edition of Shipping Law Out Now

Shipping Law

The 5th edition of Simon Baughen's textbook Shipping Law is now available. This new edition offers a brand new section on arbitration, as well as detailed consideration of recent developments in law from the LOF 2011 and the 2010 Protocol to the HNS Convention. With in-depth commentary and analysis on recent important judical decisions of the Supreme Court in The Cendor Mopu, and of the Court of Appeal in The Eternity, The Wadi Sudr, The Kos, and The Eagle Valencia, this textbook presents fully-to-date and well-balanced coverage of key cases and is an essential reference source for both students and those in practice.

Shipping Law is the only book to cover both the wet and dry parts of shipping, including accidents and collisions, loss and damage to freight, piracy and salvage operations as well as contracts, charter arrangements, construction and funding issues.

With clear content and an easy to follow style it is particularly helpful to masters students who have a shipping background rather than a legal background. 

This new edition offers expanded coverage of arbitration and mediation issues as well as a consideration of environmental matters. It is also the only textbook that covers both wet and dry shipping law.
