The focus of this new book is the modern Law of Marine Insurance, a subject of considerable practical importance in the United Kingdom and throughout the world. While existing works have tended to be preoccupied with the description of case law, largely based upon the Marine Insurance Act1906, this book adopts an approach which is line with current legal practice in that it looks towards the 1983 Institute Clauses as the foundation of modern legal practice in Marine Insurance. Similarly, while many practitioners' works rely upon listing and describing cases, the style of this workis analytical and rigorous thereby bringing to the subject a clarity hitherto missing. In terms of content the work covers the well-established basic structure of the topic starting with an introduction to the Law of Marine Insurance and the Insurance Market itself, before moving on to deal with theduty of good faith, the principles of causation, marine risks, losses, formation, cover, claims, subrogation and so forth. The book finishes with a series of useful appendixes setting out the relevant legislation, institute clauses and standard forms.The focus of this new book is the modern Law of Marine Insurance, a subject of considerable practical importance in the United Kingdom and throughout the world.
