Peculiar features of determination of jurisdiction of international commercial arbitrations of Great Britain in the field of trade maritime

Many standard forms of charters and general bills of lading, which have been used for the decades in the international maritime, contain the rules of transmission of marine disputes for consideration to the jurisdiction establishments located in Great Britain. The active role of the English courts of arbitration in the field of adjudicatory consideration of marine disputes is usually explained by numerical superiority of the English commercial shipping which occupied the first place in the world in the XX century; by the role of London in the questions of insurance and counter-insurance because insurers are people who are always interested in the settlement of disputes; by the role of pound sterling in the trade maritime; by considerable distribution in the trade maritime of English standard forms of charters and agreement on rescuing.
