"This thoroughly revised second edition of the Research Handbook on International Insurance Law and Regulation provides an updated assessment of the insurance industry in an international context, featuring 30 chapters, of which half are new for this edition, written by expert academics and practising lawyers. Produced in association with Lloyd's of London, chapters provide in-depth studies on key areas including judicial interpretation of insurance contract clauses and transnational regulatory recognition, as well as overviews on important international jurisdictions such as the EU, Japan and the US. This comprehensive second edition critically analyses how insurance law and regulation have responded to the growth in sophisticated technology, the burgeoning climate crisis, and the development of new insurance structures. This Research Handbook will appeal to legal students and academics, particularly those with an interest in commercial law, finance and banking law, and insurance law. This book will also be beneficial for policymakers and private practice lawyers working in the commercial legal sector"--, Provided by publisher
