The Law Of Carriage Of Goods by Sea


This three-part book exposes the reader to the fundamentals of international trade and delves into bills of lading and charterparties. While the book is based on English law, it includes cases and materials from other countries, including Singapore, Malaysia, India, the United States, and Australia, to provide a global perspective. Practitioners in crafting case arguments could benefit from the practical analysis, commentaries, and critiques of cases. Although the book was developed with practitioners, academics, and students in mind, it will also be valuable for maritime carriers, freight forwarders, international traders, bankers, and others because the difficult subject is presented in a reader-friendly and easy-to-understand manner.
