Parsons, Theophilus 1797-1882
Maritime law -- United States; United States.; FAClaw - Law
Parsons was a member of the Harvard Law School faculty and an authority on maritime law. This impressive treatise was a breakthrough because it was the first to consider the law of shipping, the law of marine insurance and the law and practice of admiralty as interconnected aspects of maritime law. Parsons also includes an extensive list of United States statutes relating to commercial and maritime matters and the rules of practice for United States Courts of Admiralty and Maritime jurisdiction. Taken together, he offers an unparalleled contemporary overview of the subject by one of the most important American legal scholars of the period.
