6 April 2020
Commercial Maritime Law is edited and co-authored by Dr Melis Ozdel, Lecturer at UCL Laws.
Hart Publishing has recently published Commercial Maritime Law. Edited and co-authored by Dr Melis Ozdel, the book unravels the complexities of bridging the gap between common law and civil law in the context of commercial maritime law. This book is a collection of papers presented as part of the international maritime law conference at University College London in 2016, discussing some particular areas in which the common law and civil law are divided, the impact of these differences on the interpretation of maritime contracts and the procedural aspects of the common law and civil law divide in commercial maritime law.
Speaking about the book Dr Ozdel commented:
“The theme underpinning the discussions in the book has become even more relevant with the UK ’s recent withdrawal from the EU, which will no doubt bring significant changes to the country’s legal landscape for future decades. While uncertainty still hangs over the effect of Brexit, it is hoped that this book will shed light on some of the key differences between legal traditions in the context of commercial maritime law.”
