In this book, Professor Malcolm Clarke provides a stimulating, critical introduction to the English law of insurance contracts, presenting the rules in both their legal and socio-economic contexts. He sets out the principles behind the law in a clear manner, moving on to explore the implications of certain rules in order to examine the importance of effective insurance and effective insurance law in modern society. Comparative reference is made to the corresponding rules in common lawcountries and also in major jurisdictions in western Europe, providing a thought-provoking wider view of the relevant law. The book illustrates the different perceptions of insurance and of insurance law that are to be found amongst lawyers, insurers, and policy-holders. In particular, it argues that the perception of many people, and also not least of many judges, is that if any dispute arises with insurers, insurers have an unfair advantage under the law. Moreover, this is in fact usuallythe case, if insurers choose to use their advantage. By presenting the rules of insurance contract law in the wider context of contract law at large, the book seeks to demystify them and to challenge the assumption that insurance law is or ought to be greatly different from other parts of the law. In particular, he argues that insurance contract law should be available and intelligible to serious enquirers, lawyers, and non-lawyers alike.

The Third Edition brings this casebook up to date on the most recent cases and developments in insurance law. Including but going beyond the basics of insurance contract, tort, remedies and commercial law regulation and litigation, this book highlights insurance law in action using the business as a proving ground for federal-state relations, for the powers of administrative agencies and corporate governance, and for new formulations of tort and statutory law. It traces the fortunes of the business from Lloyds coffee house and before to the Trade Towers and after. This book is ample for at least a three-hour course. It lends itself to a shorter one, and in either case, by variety, to selective emphasis. An instructor might choose to emphasize the popular lines of insurance, policy terms in general use, and advocacy in insurance disputes. Another might emphasize regulation of the insurance business, giving particular attention to tension between federal and state authorities. O
