By Francis Rose 

Marine Insurance: Law and Practice, 2nd edition, continues to provide the most comprehensive and integrated account of the English law and practice of marine insurance. It provides readers with a fresh and up-to-date review of the modern law in the light of traditional principles and rules of underlying commercial law, and the specific statutory rules of marine insurance as interpreted by case law, as moderated in practice by market practices and standard form marine insurance clauses. 

Francis Rose clarifies the law’s underlying framework of principles and illustrates how it works in common contractual situations, explaining how the different components of the law interact. 

The new edition has been updated to incorporate recent case law such as The Cendor MOP, The Silva, The Resolute and The Marina Iris. Also considered are the implications of the introduction of the Institute Cargo Clauses 2009, the effect of the Gambling Act 2005 and the Third Parties (Rights Against Insurers) Act 2010 Law Commission reform proposals. The book explores in detail the following areas: the nature of insurance; insurable interest; the insurance contract; the premium; insured risks; marine risks; exclusions; losses; claims; subrogation; and double insurance.

Previous edition winner of British Insurance Law Association book prize

Alison Green, the Chairman of the Trustees of the BILA Charitable Trust said, as she awarded the BILA Book Prize to Francis:
“This textbook is a welcome addition to the texts on marine insurance law as it combines in one volume all the areas which a practitioner or student of marine insurance law needs to know. It is written in a very readable style, which makes it readily approachable for those unfamiliar with this topic. It combines an academic's insight into the law with a modern and practical approach to problems that frequently beset marine insurance. This book richly deserves to be the winner of the annual BILA book prize"
This second edition will now form part of the prestigious Lloyd’s Shipping Law Library, and is widely recognised as one of the leading works in the area, worthy to sit alongside other core texts such as Time Charters and Voyage Charters.

Authoritative and trusted by lawyers worldwide, this book is a must have for all those involved in the marine insurance field.
