Starting from a revisit to Carter v Boehm, the collected papers in this book are intended as a catalyst for rethinking the pre-contractual duties in insurance law and the related principle of utmost good faith at a critical era for insurance law.

In so doing, it endeavours to provide insurance law students, academics, practitioners and judges with refreshed perspectives for a keen understanding of this fundamental aspect of insurance law, which has been incrementally dynamic under both common law and civil law legal traditions.

It will explore to what extent and why the doctrines of pre-contractual duties in insurance law under the two major legal traditions are converging, as well as the implications of such convergence. It will be of great interest to academics and practitioners in the field of insurance law.
