Insurance Law Implications of Delay in Maritime Transport

Insurance Law Implications of Delay in Maritime Transport

Author: Aysegul Bugra Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/07/2017

Delay in a marine adventure is an important and frequent phenomenon of maritime transport as it affects various parties and their interests. Insurance Law Implications of Delay in Maritime Transport is the first single book to deal specifically with this issue in the context of insurance law. The book addresses the losses and expenses that may arise from delay or loss of time in maritime transport, the types of insurance available covering or excluding losses arising from it and the impact of delay on voyage policies. The author, Aysegul Bugra, critically examines and evaluates the scope of several different types of marine insurance policies, including but not limited to: hull and machinery, cargo, freight, loss of hire and marine delay in start-up insurance. Furthermore, the book analyses the current law by tracing back the relevant common law authorities to the 18th century and examines the wordings used in practice from that time to today with a comprehensive and critical approach. This unique text will be of great interest to legal practitioners, shipping professionals and academics alike.

Seaports in International Law

Seaports in International Law

Author: Marco Casagrande Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 20/07/2017

This is the first book to offer a comprehensive overview of modern seaports from a legal perspective. Further, it provides a basic toolkit for establishing a legal doctrine of seaports, the instruments of said toolkit being the very few legal norms specifically targeting seaports, which are examined as such rather than through the lens of other, more established disciplines, such as the law of the sea or transportation law. It is a first, necessary step toward giving seaports the status they rightfully deserve in legal studies. Despite centuries of international law studies and decades of EU law evolution, seaports have remained stuck in limbo. From a law of the sea perspective, seaports belong to the land, an approach that is often clearly reflected in national maritime legislation. The other branches of international law do not focus on seaports, since they are considered to belong to the sea. The port communities, for their part, have availed themselves of the port specificity concept. In recent decades, containerization has transformed ports into key hubs of the globalized economy, but also into vital checkpoints of the War on Terror, due to the security risks posed by the millions of sealed containers circulating worldwide. Moreover, tragic maritime incidents have shown that seaports are the only reliable sentinels of the seas, being the only places where the systematic inspection of ships is feasible. This has led to the adoption of specific international and EU rules. Those rules, however, remain fragmented, highly specialized and technical; as such, they are unsuitable for creating an organic legal seaport regime: this objective can only be achieved with a significant contribution from legal doctrine.

Cases and Materials on Admiralty

Cases and Materials on Admiralty

Author: David Sharpe, David Sharpe, Peter Winship Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/03/2017

Through judicial opinions, statutes, conventions, documents, and textual notes, this Admiralty casebook shows how lawyers help their clients reallocate the risks inherent in domestic and international maritime transactions, and how lawyers help resolve disputes that arise from maritime transportation. The Sixth Edition updates the treatment of the usual topics and significantly rearranges the structure. A new chapter titled Loss Allocation combines previous chapters on general average, marine insurance, and limitation of liability into a single presentation. This new chapter addresses questions such as whether a potential loss can be reallocated in advance; whether to leave the loss where it falls or to make the duty-breacher pay; and whether the loss is limited, shared, or diverted to another party. The editors have sought to keep the Sixth Edition both comfortable for long-time users and accessible to new users.

Delivery of Goods under Bills of Lading

Delivery of Goods under Bills of Lading

Author: Anders Mollmann Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/11/2016

Probably the core characteristic of a bill of lading is that the original bill of lading must be presented at the port of destination for a consignee to be entitled to delivery of the goods and for the carrier to get a good discharge of its delivery obligation by delivering the goods to said consignee. This notion is accepted virtually worldwide, but the more precise content of the presentation rule differs from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Furthermore, and of importance, the legal basis establishing the presentation rule differs. With the technological advances in maritime transport as well as in communications technology and the emergence of more complicated trading patterns, a system where a specific tangible piece of paper issued at the port of loading has to be presented at the port of discharge to obtain delivery of the goods seems almost archaic and can obviously create problems. Thus, in practice very often - especially in some trades such as the oil trade - the bill of lading is not available at the port of discharge when the ship is ready to deliver the cargo. The book will first analyse the presentation rule , its finer contents and its legal basis. It will then go on with (legal) analyses of three developments and responses to the problems that the bill of lading system gives rise to in practice, viz. the commercial, the international legislature's, and the technological response. The commercial response analysed here consists of contractual exemption or limitation clauses in the bill of lading set up as a defence against claims for misdelivery. The international legislature's response denotes the adoption of the Rotterdam Rules which as the first international convention on carriage of goods by sea includes elaborate rules on delivery of the goods. Finally, the technological response denotes the possibility of using electronic (equivalents of) bills of lading. The analyses will include a comparative approach examining both English and Scandinavian law to elucidate the issues with greater clarity.
