Maritime, admiralty law, or the law of the sea is a separate body of procedural and substantive law governing ships and shipping, business or commerce transacted at sea, and the duties, rights, and liabilities of shipowners, shipmasters, and other maritime workers.
Topics associated with admiralty include finds and salvage, maritime liens, forfeitures and penalties, towage, marinas, maritime contracts, and maritime injury. Under admiralty, the flag flown by the ship determines the law on board, meaning a ship flying the American flag in the Mediterranean Sea is subject to American admiralty law, and a ship flying the Greek flag in American waters is subject to Greek law.
