CURRENCY: 4th Edition November 2018

The fourth edition of this popular textbook provides a comprehensive and authoritative treatment of insurance law and offers a practical approach to the subject. It covers a wide range of topics from particular policies and the protection of third parties, to claims and the consequences of settlement. Fully updated in light of new cases and recent regulatory regulation changes in insurance law.
Since the last edition there have been very significant changes to the Law of insurance and these are covered in detail including:

• The Consumer Insurance (Disclosure and Representations Act) 2012
• The insurance Act 2015
• Versloot, which ended the "collateral lies" rule
• A number of cases on the scope of compulsory motor insurance
• Insurers' liability in mesothelioma cases, which has been considered by the Supreme Court along with the interpretation of contractual terms more generally

In addition to these statutory changes there are significant case law developments in many other areas which are also covered in depth.
