Maritime/Admiralty Law

A very unique area of law that is not as commonly discussed in the media as other areas of law is that of maritime law. This area of law is also known as admiralty law and this primarily deals with shipping on the water and how people break the maritime laws. This is where admiralty lawyers come in and take on these sometimes complicated cases; in order to get there, you must go through a legal recruiter such as Boston Legal Recruitment and you can receive great training in the field of maritime and admiralty law.

Any potential attorney that signs on with a recruiter such will learn about how to handle being a maritime lawyer. You’ll be taught by our expert attorneys in the field of maritime law and will learn the ins and outs of being on a case involving this unique area of law.

As a lawyer in this field of law, you’ll learn how the maritime system works and what offenses are easy to go for and against, as well as the ones that are more difficult depending on how bad they are and how in-depth they’ll go in terminology. These offenses include those in shipping goods and products, whether it’s domestic or foreign, as well as recreational boating and anything else that involves being on the water.

Each state in the United States will have attorneys with different approaches on the subject of admiralty law since there are certain laws within maritime jurisdiction that are intrastate. However, there are others that are federal so that all maritime lawyers will look at them in the same light. Depending on what state you will want to work in after your training is finished with the legal recruiter, your choice will determine how you’ll interpret maritime laws.

Some of the things that any maritime lawyer deals with include:

  • Limitation of a ship owner’s liability (occurs when something unforeseeable occurs that was beyond their control, such as a hurricane or an accident done by another driver)
  • Cargo claims (occurs when cargo gets lost, damaged and/or stolen)
  • Personal injury claims given in by seamen (occurs when a member of the crew or somebody else gets injured on the ship owner’s boat or maritime vehicle)
  • Maritime lien and mortgages (occurs when there are monetary issues for the ship’s crew and other payments aren’t done to their fullest capacity)
  • Salvage -contract salvage (where the ship owner and other party or parties sign a contract before this occurs) -pure/merit salvage (high or low depending on the danger and the property saved)

If you think that you’d want to be in the field of maritime law as a lawyer or attorney, then you should send your curriculum vitae (or CV) to us here at Boston Legal Recruitment, and as your legal recruiter will help you find the position you want based on your desires.
