Maritime Law

The Maritime Law is a regulatory body that governs the problems that may arise from the relationship between private law entities dedicated to maritime traffic. The maritime law must be distinguished from the law of the sea, consisting of a body of rules of international law governing the legal relations between states and not between individuals.
