Comparative Maritime Law

It is maritime trade that makes the world go round; it was ever thus.

In the early days of seaborne trade, customs developed to regulate the relationship between the parties to a maritime adventure. These customs were ultimately recorded and implemented as regulations or laws. Inevitably these laws developed in different directions in different countriesleading to uncertainty and confusion. Tremendous strides have been made in unifying maritime laws through international conventions but, because compliance with these conventions is not mandatory, significant differences between coastal states remain. A proper understanding of the conventions and national laws is therefore essential.

Professor Hassania Cherkaoui skillfully pilots us through this sea of uncertainty by comparing the maritime laws of her own country, Morocco, with those applicable in other civil as well as common law jurisdictions. Her authoritative analysis will undoubtedly prove most useful to both academics and practitioners.
