What is Maritime Law
Maritime law is the law that exclusively governs activities at sea or in general in navigable waters; even more so, and according to the Cambridge dictionary, Maritime Law is “the collection of laws related to ships and the transport of goods by sea”. Thus and in a few words matters related to shipping law, including admiralty and marine-related matters all consist part of the agenda of this specific and specialized field of law.
