After having been lucky enough to have been taught by Professor Dockray himself, his book is a true guide to Maritime Law. The book, which contains up to date and important cases, follows a well laid out chapter by chapeter guide to Shipping Law at an LLB level. Each chapter outlines the relevant statute and case law which acts as authority to the ideas behind the various shipping practices. The book also contains various shipping documents such as Bills of Lading and standard form agreements to familiarise yourself with the practical side of shipping law.
The commentary by Professor Dockray is truly a pleasure to read as it is well laid out and unlike many texts available, while it is very simple to follow. I would recommend this book to anybody looking to venture into Maritime Law. As for those studying it, its a one stop shop to all you need.
