The Law Ends Where the Port Area Begins

On the Anomalies of Port Law: Inaugural Lecture at the Launch of Portius - International and EU Port Law Centre

PORTIUS is the world's first institution to specialize in the study of international and EU law on maritime and inland ports. This book is the inaugural lecture by PORTIUS chairman Eric van Hooydonk, illustrating the rich tradition and highly dynamic nature of port law and arguing that it is integral to maritime law. The lecture also highlights numerous deviations from the general law and the preference of ports not to be subject to legal regulation.
