The lore of the sea draws people from land to the oceans for work and play, and the law of the sea draws litigants to courts for the trial of maritime cases. This book will be familiar to users of prior editions. The Fourth Edition calls upon law students to recall the ordinary law and procedure of federal and state courts, to learn exotic maritime law and procedure for events on salt and fresh waters, and in a broad range of maritime shipping contexts, to adjust conflicts of state laws and state courts with federal laws and courts, and conflicts of national law with international law. The 2002 Documents Supplement remains a useful supplement to the Fourth Edition.
