This second edition of the popular marine insurance law publication was prepared and released with the aim to introduce and clearly explain all important matters that are normally covered within the courses for masters; the students and people new to the area will be offered a remarkably accessible and comprehensive overview of this part of the maritime law.
The publication opens with the brief but informative introduction to the essential principles of the maritime law as well as formation and structure of the maritime shipping insurance contracts. Then, the author proceeds to the individual considerations, giving their detailed explanation. Among the topics covered there are insurable interest, fraudulent claims, fair presentation of the associated risks, reinsurance, marine perils and many other aspects.
The content of this edition is revised to reflect the significant changes that were presented within the Insurance Act 2015; in addition, there are several newly introduced appendices that contain information about the applicable regulations and give some example clauses that have been taken from the real maritime insurance contract and included for reference.
