The Law and Practice of Admiralty Matters opens with a consideration of the scope of admiralty action as set out in the Supreme Court Act 1981. Concepts peculiar to admiralty, such as maritime and statutory liens, and peculiarities of procedure under Practice Direction 61 are covered in detail.

As well as covering procedural issues for court based dispute resolution, difficult areas relating to arbitration in practice are also addressed.

A distinguishing feature of this work is the extensive consideration of the case law of commonwealth jurisdictions.The comparative approach is particularly illuminating where there is an absence of clarity in English law such as in the areas of post arrest applicationsand the interaction between admiralty arrest and insolvency proceedings.

This new work is an essential addition to the literature on this area tackling difficult areas in detail and drawing in authorities from Commonwealth jurisdictions to illuminate gaps in English law.
