5 Credits,  Semester 2

Course Description:
This course will focus on charterparties, which are contracts between the shipowner and the charterer for the hire of the vessel, either for a specific voyage (voyage charterparties) or over a period of time (time charterparties). There are in addition, other variants of these basic types, which will also be referred to. This course will examine the standard forms for each of the charterparties being studied and examine the main terms and legal relationship between shipowners and charterers. This dynamic and important aspect of the law of carriage of goods by sea is frequently the subject of arbitral proceedings and court decisions.
