"The framers of the U.S. Constitution, for example, included aspects of admiralty in this fundamental document. In Article III (regarding the judicial branch of the government), the Constitution decrees that the judicial powers described:

"Shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority; - to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction."

This section of the Constitution gives the federal courts jurisdiction over admiralty laws and disputes. In addition, the U.S. Congress regulates admiralty in part through the Commerce Clause of the Constitution."
