“This book enriches our collective understanding and appreciation of the Himalaya Clause in the context of maritime law.”
--The Hon Justice Sarah C Derrington
The Himalaya Clause traces the demise of the Privity Rule in maritime endeavours. This book provides its readers with a comparative understanding of the Clause across key jurisdictions, including common law, civil law, and mixed legal systems. The author and contributor consider not only the relevant legislation which gives rights to third parties under a maritime contract, but also discuss the commercial consequences of the demise of the Privity Rule for carriers and other actors involved in maritime adventures. The book enriches the knowledge of practising maritime lawyers, international businesspeople, academics, and students.
