The third edition of Insurance Law: Doctrines and Principles follows the widely acclaimed first and second editions. It provides a detailed examination of the developing law of insurance, combining exposition of the law with critical analysis. The book is designed with the needs of undergraduate and postgraduate students in mind. The text is enhanced by extensive citations to case law and academic commentaries, making the book ideal for students, scholars and practitioners alike.
This new edition reflects the many changes that have occurred in the law of insurance since the second edition was published in 2005. The book is divided into two parts. Part I considers the regulation of insurance business and the general principles underlying the law of insurance contracts. Part II examines the way in which these principles are shaped by the particular insurance context in which they operate. The book is readable and authoritative, with a sound grasp of the realities of insurance practice; it is well sourced and generous with supplementary points.
'Lowry & Rawlings is a welcome addition to the ranks of insurance law textbooks and a serious contender for the student readership in this field.'
