- The Third Edition, which follows the Second Edition by nearly a decade, includes the fundamental decisions on admiralty law handed down by courts in Singapore, Australia, the United Kingdom, and Hong Kong in the recent decade.
Several chapters have been updated to reflect recent legislative and case law developments, particularly in the fields of admiralty jurisdiction, arrest procedure, maritime liens, and tonnage limits.
- While the legislative references are based on Singapore and Malaysian law, the Third Edition of Admiralty Law & Practice also includes instances from other jurisdictions, such as the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and Canada, that have the same or essentially similar legislative frameworks on admiralty law as these two. The Singapore, Malaysian, Hong Kong, and Australian courts have all mentioned earlier editions of this book (Admiralty Law & Practice) in their rulings.
