Caresse Navigation Ltd v Office National De L’Electricite and Others: ComC 14 Oct 2013

The Court was asked as to the effect of the incorporation into a bill of lading of the ‘Law and Arbitration clause’ of an identified charterparty when the dispute resolution clause in that charterparty provides, not for English law and arbitration, but for English law and court jurisdiction. Two main questions arise: (i) should the clause be read as providing for the jurisdiction of this court and (ii) is there in any event an effective choice of English law as the law applicable to the bill of lading?
