Transport Law in Norway

A systematic approach to transport law as applied in Norway is provided in this book. It is derived from the multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws. The main sources of transport law are described here: jurisdiction and courts, state immunity, and the legal role of transport intermediaries. Detailed reference is given to maritime law, road transport, air transport, rail transport, and inland navigation. Multimodal transport is the subject of a special chapter. Following are among the elements of transport law that are considered: legal status of the vessel; its acquisition, ownership, and registration; vessel liens and mortgages; the position of master and crew; maritime salvage and assistance; marine pollution; collision; and carriage of passengers. Among other topics that are discussed, the following are included: liability and limitation of liability, charter parties, and transport under bill of lading. Also covered are case law, intergovernmental cooperation agreements, and interactions with environmental, tax, and competition law.
