Abstract

This paper only focuses on cases in which contracts of carriage were made between an English party and an oversea party to emphasize the distinct aspects of English law which were not fully acknowledged by the oversea party. These aspects gave rise to a lot of dangers for carriers involved in the process of delivery and were usually caused by differences in sea laws between England and other countries, especially non-common law countries. These risks were often considered as actual pitfalls encountered by many carriers and other involved parties in international trade. However, they could be also viewed as potential and perceived pitfalls because as the circumstances of cases vary from one to another, judgments handed down by the Courts will also vary, depending on each Judge’s interpretation of equity and other principles in tort and contract laws.
