Otherwise known as admiralty law, maritime law is a body of laws that governs both nautical issues and private maritime disputes. It sets the precedence of how one uses the seas and oceans, regulating activities and behaviours on open water. Despite being a highly-specialised field, maritime law is comprised of a broad range of disciplines, including those related to financing, construction, transportation of goods, and the like.
