Course Description

This course explores the complexities of determining whether a case is within the admiralty jurisdiction and the often case-resolving consequence of that determination. It also explores maritime lien law, actions in rem and quasi in rem, the law of maritime industrial accidents and several uniquely maritime proceedings, such as complaint to limit liability, claims for salvage awards and general average. The course provides an overview of a unique body of comprehensive laws that govern every aspect of navigation on the lakes and rivers of the U.S. and upon the high seas. (2 credits) Paper.
