MacGillivray on Insurance Law is the established authority on non-maritime commercial insurance and risk. For over one hundred years it has been a trusted text for providing comprehensive and clear guidance through its examination of the most recent cases and legislative developments. Covering general principles, particular classes of business and the parties involved, it is a must-have title for anyone seeking advice on insurance law.

The fourteenth edition has been updated to include:

  • Analysis of the highly significant Supreme Court case of Wood v Capita Insurance Services on construction
  • Looks at the Supreme Court decision in Brownlie v Four Seasons Holdings Inc and all the latest developments following its ruling in Patel v Mirza
  • Commentary on the ECJ case Van Hove v CNP Assurances SA concerning unfair terms
  • Numerous Court of Appeal decisions including Spire Healthcare Ltd v Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance Plc on aggregation, Western Trading Limited v Great Lakes Reinsurance (UK) Plc on reinstatement, and Maccaferri Ltd v Zurich Insurance Plc on notice of loss
  • The chapter on warranties has been significantly revised to take account of statutory reforms, whilst retaining full account of the previous law where still relevant
  • The aviation chapter has been updated with two new international conventions covering compulsory insurance: the General Risks Convention and the Unlawful Interference Compensation Convention
  • Fully updated references throughout the book to acknowledge changes introduced by the Insurance Act
