A General Average adjuster - usually appointed by a shipowner or insurer - is a marine claims specialist responsible for adjusting and providing a General Average statement. In international conferences, the role of General Average adjusters is to place expertise at the disposal of delegates who may make the decisions regarding which amendments, if any, will be adopted in the revision of rules. Any recommendations by the profession will be made with the object of maintaining the principles of General Average, avoiding ambiguity, and limiting the scope of potential dispute. Why were the international rules about General Average changed between 1994 and 2004? Who were the instigators? What was the outcome? This book - an essential read for practitioners in maritime law and marine insurance - examines these questions. It updates the knowledge of intricacies surrounding the fascinating subject of General Average adjustment.

Maritime Terrorism

Risk and Liability

Policymakers have become increasingly concerned in recent years about the possibility of future maritime terrorist attacks. Though the historical occurrence of such attacks has been limited, recognition that maritime vessels and facilities may be particularly vulnerable to terrorism has galvanized concerns. In addition, some plausible maritime attacks could have very significant consequences, in the form of mass casualties, severe property damage, and attendant disruption of commerce. Understanding the nature of maritime terrorism risk requires an investigation of threats, vulnerabilities, and consequences associated with potential attacks, as grounded both by relevant historical data and by intelligence on the capabilities and intentions of known terrorist groups. These risks also provide the context for understanding government institutions that will respond to future attacks, and particularly so with regard to the U.S. civil justice system. In principle, civil liability operates to redistribute the harms associated with legally redressable claims, so that related costs are borne by the parties responsible for having caused them. In connection with maritime terrorism, civil liability creates the prospect that independent commercial defendants will be held responsible for damages caused by terrorist attacks. This book explores risks and U.S. civil liability rules as they may apply in the context of these types of attacks.

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.
