Admiralty concerns activities which occur at sea. This includes small boats and ships in bays that are deep and wide enough for ships to be steered or guided. Admiralty (also referred to as ”admiralty law”, “law of admiralty”, “Law of the Sea” or “maritime law”) is a specialized area of law, which is often handled by admiralty law specialists. Lawyers appearing in admiralty cases are called “proctors.”
covers accidents and injuries at sea, maritime contracts and commerce, alleged violations of the rules of the sea over shipping lanes and rights-of-way, and mutiny and other crimes aboard ship. These laws and regulations, including international agreements and treaties, exclusively govern activities at sea or in any navigable waters.
This also includes territorial and international waters, and deals with shipping or with ocean fishery, as well. In the United States, federal courts (U.S. District Courts) hold jurisdiction over these matters; judgments in admiralty cases are appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals. However, in some matters, the Congress has granted concurrent jurisdiction to the state courts. There are other special rules in processing maritime cases.
Aviation law covers almost all aspects of flight, air travel, aircraft and airport operation and regulation and associated legal and business concerns. This area of law is a complex discipline that consists of operators, pilots, mechanics, air traffic controllers, manufacturers, and the laws that govern their activities. It is a specialized field that requires a detailed understanding of aviation, FAA rules and regulations, and specific laws related to aviation.
Both federal and state governments have enacted statutes and created administrative agencies to regulate air traffic, although aviation law operates mostly at the federal level. The agency that oversees most aspects of aviation law is the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). States are prohibited from regulating rates, routes or services of any air carrier authorized under the Federal Aviation Act to provide interstate air transportation. States are not prohibited, however, from enacting consistent laws, or from altering existing remedies under state law. Also, state products liability law is not preempted by Federal law and in most cases, aviation manufacturers may be held strictly liable for defects in aviation products.
Aviation Law can include defending a pilot from a potential Federal Aviation Regulation violation or a family member who lost their life or was seriously injured in an aircraft accident.
