Overview

The maritime law of the United States is harmonious in broad outline with the laws of other maritime nations, but it has a unique structure—tied to the U.S. Constitution and the Judiciary Act of 1789—entailing a special set of intellectual challenges. Admiralty and Maritime Law in the United States is a leading casebook that reveals the areas of international harmony and explores U.S. law's special features. Each of the authors is an admiralty expert, but the book strives for a generalist's perspective. It aims to tie the admiralty field into the students' other studies while providing the fundamental professional tools necessary to the advanced study or practice of U.S. maritime law.
