The Rotterdam Rules represent the most comprehensive overhaul of the law of carriage of goods by sea in more than fifty years. To coincide with the signing ceremony, six members of the Institute of Maritime Law have written a detailed commentary on the Rules. The Rotterdam Rules: A Practical Annotation examines the text of the Rules, all ninety-six articles of the new Convention, and compares them to the text of the Hague-Visby Rules, the instrument currently covering most bills of lading. The authors have also examined the judgments in cases decided in the English Courts under the Carriage of Goods by Sea Acts of 1971 and 1992 and have indicated whether these cases would be decided differently under the new Rotterdam Rules.

This book is based on papers presented at the Sixth International Colloquium in September 2009, organized by the Institute of International Shipping and Trade at Swansea University. The 16 contributions have been written by a team of international experts who collectively submit the newly proposed Rotterdam Rules to a sustained, penetrative, and comprehensive analysis. The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Carriage of Goods Wholly or Partly by Sea 2009 - from which the Rotterdam Rules derive - potentially represents a development of unparalleled significance in the field of unimodal carriage of goods by sea and multimodal transport with a sea leg. The scale of the Rules is staggeringly wide, as also are their detail and complexity, and coming to a full understanding of the provisions and implications of the Rules represents a challenge even to those experienced in the law and practice of commercial shipping. The book examines virtually all aspects of the Rules and provid

With the Maritime Labour Convention now in force (as of August 2013), the shipping industry is faced with a new international convention that has comprehensive implications across all sectors. This vital text provides timely analysis and thought-provoking essays regarding the Convention’s application and enforcement in practice. Hailed as the "Seafarer’s Bill of Rights" and the "fourth pillar" of the international regulatory regime for quality shipping, the Maritime Labour Convention is set to significantly alter the playing field for key stakeholders. This book offers diverse and interesting commentary in respect of the Convention’s impact on core sectors of the shipping industry, identifying both strengths and weaknesses of the Convention, as well as potential hurdles that will need to be overcome. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of the Convention, ranging from individual rights of the seafarer to challenges of flag State implementation. Special attention is given to enforcement through examination of the innovative measures provided in the Convention itself, along with discussion of domestic enforcement mechanisms in certain States. Furthermore, the book evaluates whether the Convention has filled existing gaps in maritime labour law, resolved prior difficulties or created new problems. This book expertly addresses issues of fundamental importance to national authorities, shipping professionals and associations, maritime lawyers and academics worldwide. ---In memory of Richard Shaw---
