Statutory Law in Maritime Law

Note: There is more information on maritime/admiralty law here.

The following is a definition of Statutory Law, produced by Tetley, in the context of admiralty law: The law found in legislation other than civil codes. Statutory law is basic to both the civil law (see this maritime law term in this legal dictionary) and the common law (see this maritime law term in this legal dictionary). In common law jurisdictions, most rules are found in the jurisprudence and statutes complete them. In civil law jurisdictions, the important principles are stated in codes, while statutes complete them. See Tetley, Mixed Jurisdictions: common law vs. civil law (codified and uncodified) (Part I) 1999-4 Uniform Law Review 591-619 at p. 597.
