Around 480 million tonnes of cargo passes through UK ports every year. Britain imports around 50% of its food, and most of that arrives by ship. Dover is one of the world’s busiest passenger ports. The English Channel is the world’s busiest shipping lane. Around 80% of global trade is transported by ship, with English law and London arbitration being the world’s top choice for international dispute resolution. Shipping is both big business and vitally important, and this module will introduce you to English shipping law.
