(“AMC”) has earned the reputation as a critical source for researching American maritime law. AMC’s copyrighted indexing system and meaningful, practical headnotes are prepared by experienced admiralty attorneys. AMC’s system permits a user to quickly and easily identify and access the key and relevant maritime court decisions from a database of over 37,000 maritime cases.
With AMC’s system, one avoids having to spend significant time searching general case law of multiple U.S. jurisdictions, or reading through peripheral or irrelevant decisions, particularly those decisions located electronically via general word searches. AMC is an invaluable and time saving tool to anyone researching maritime law or wanting to stay abreast of the most recent developments in maritime law.
Benjamin A. Moore.
AMC is sorry to share the sad news that Benjamin A. Moore has passed away. Ben became an AMC Associate Editor for the Port of Charleston in 1966 at a time when the main editors were still the original (1923) founders of the publication. He served under several subsequent editors until 2002. During this period, he effectively contributed to the coverage of admiralty law and was admired and respected by judges as well as the admiralty bar. AMC is in his debt for his fine reporting. In addition to his service to AMC, Ben’s distinguished career as an admiralty practitioner included a term on the Executive Committee of the MLA (’74-’77), and as a co-founder in 1968 of the Southeastern Admiralty Law Institute.
