Maritime law is basically the law of the high seas. If you were to Google search it on the internet, I would expect you would see a number of cased cited that would discuss the history and the progression of maritime law. However, there is no general federal maritime law. It’s mostly been made historically by judges sitting on the bench deciding these maritime cases as they’ve come down over the last couple of hundred years.
