What is maritime law?

Maritime law, also known as admiralty law, is a body of laws, conventions, and treaties that govern private maritime business and other nautical matters, such as shipping or offenses occurring on open water. International rules governing the use of the oceans and seas are known as the Law of the Sea. Maritime law is administered by the admiralty courts. 

What is the difference between maritime law and admiralty law?

The terms admiralty and maritime law are sometimes used interchangeablyinterchangeably. Admiralty originally referred to a specific court in England and the American colonies that had jurisdiction over torts and contracts on the high seas, whereas substantive maritime law developed through the expansion of admiralty court jurisdiction to include all activities on the high seas and similar activities on navigable waters. Today, there is no difference between admiralty law and maritime law and the two are used interchangeably. 

How do I know if I need a maritime lawyer?

You may need a maritime lawyer if you are involved in a legal dispute that occurred on navigable waters. This could include accidents that occur on boats or ships, injuries that occur while working on a vessel, or disputes over contracts related to shipping or maritime commerce. If you are unsure whether you need a maritime lawyer, it may be helpful to consult with one to determine whether your case falls under the jurisdiction of admiralty law.
