Extensively revised and restructured, the second edition remains a compact and concise treatment of insurance law in Australia. The book clearly explains fundamental legal principles, legislation and case law and frames them in a practical business context. Written by a specialist insurance law practitioner, the work aims to answer insurance law questions and guide the reader to further texts where appropriate, making it a handy 'first reference', perfect for both practitioners and students.

This expanded 2nd edition brings the text up to date, includes 10 additional Chapters, including a new Chapter dedicated to section 54 of the Insurance Contracts Act 1984 (Cth) and new Chapters on, the history of insurance, regulation of the general insurance industry and duties owed by insurance intermediaries.
