Federal courts are vested with full, but not exclusive, jurisdiction over all cases of admiralty and maritime matters. Much of the law is in a state of flux, and could even be termed arcane. The course involves the laws affecting maritime rights and obligations. The legal issues presented involve, inter alia, the carriage of goods by sea, maritime personal injuries, salvage, and collision.
