Research Handbook on International Insurance Law and Regulation
The new Research Handbook on International Insurance Law and Regulation was published today by Edward Elgar Publishing. Julian Burling is one of the two joint editors and has also contributed a chapter on the authorisation of Lloyd’s in the UK and overseas.
Given its economic importance, insurance is a field that has been underserved as an area of academic study. This detailed book provides much needed coverage of insurance law and regulation in its international context.
Produced in association with Lloyd’s, it draws on the expertise both of academics and practising lawyers. Containing 30 comprehensive chapters, it provides in-depth studies on key areas, such as the role of international organisations, the judicial interpretation of insurance contract clauses and transnational regulatory recognition. It also provides thorough introductions to important jurisdictions, including the EU, US and Japan as well as focusing on newly emerging economies such as China and Brazil. Specialist topics covered include regulation by and of Lloyd’s, the tort of bad faith in the US, microinsurance and takaful insurance.
Julian has also recently contributed a new chapter on the Lloyd’s market in the 3rd edition of “Insurance Disputes”, edited by Mance, Merkin and Goldrein and published by Informa in December 2011.
