The Romance of the Admiralty jurisdiction in the Common Law

A distinct Admiralty jurisdiction embracing shipping and related matters is a peculiarity of the common law which has its roots deep in the history of England. Its major creative influences included Roman law and the civilian tradition, with its historical development running in parallel with the ecclesiastic courts.

The development challenges the notion that the common law and civil law are wholly distinct and independent traditions. The modern-day Admiralty Court, located in the High Court in London, continues to reflect these distinct historical influences in matters of substantive jurisdiction and procedure, and also stands apart from all other common law courts in having a jurisdiction in rem, founded on service of process on property, by contrast to jurisdiction in personam.
