It provides you with analysis of essential cases from the insurance sector and includes a wide range of authorities, comparing English law with its Scottish, US and Common wealth counterparts providing you with a clear understanding of the key themes.

It also deals with the new law under the Consumer Insurance (Disclosure and Representations) Act 2012 and considers the latest restructuring of the FSA and Bank of England, looking at the shift of responsibilities.
