.The national monographs in this subset of the International Encyclopaedia of
Laws deal with transport law in its broadest sense: jurisdiction, state
immunity, and the main sources of transport law. With reference to maritime
law, the reader will find information on the legal status of the vessel, its
acquisition, ownership and registration. Other topics discussed are maritime
liens and mortgages, the position of master and crew, liability and limitation
of liability (L.L.M.C. Convention 1976), charter parties and Transport under
Bill of Lading (Hague-Visby Rules), transport by air (Warsaw Convention and
related conventions), transport by rail (C.O.T.I.F. Convention) and inland
navigation. A special chapter is devoted to Multimodal Transport. Finally,
European Union competition law in the field of transport is discussed.
International monographs address marine pollution, salvage, the Hamburg rules,
the UN Convention on Multimodal Transport, the Limitation of Liability for
Maritime Claims (the L.L.M.C. 1976 Convention), and the roles of the
International Maritime Organization (I.M.O.), the Comiti Maritime
International (C.M.I.), and BIMCO.
