The book provides a detailed review of efforts to reform the law on insurance warranties in Australia, New Zealand and the UK, arguing that none of these have been successful. The text proposes a radical new approach to reform of this area of the law, demonstrating through detailed stress testing of these proposals that they would deliver more consistent and equitable outcomes than those achieved to date. Reform of the historically inequitable law of insurance warranties in commercial insurance has been introduced in Australia, New Zealand and, most recently, the UK. This book demonstrates that all these reforms have flaws and that none of them can be relied upon to deliver consistently equitable and predictable outcomes; in particular the UK’s, as yet largely untested, Insurance Act 2015 is shown to have serious flaws that have not previously been identified. Building on lessons from these three jurisdictions, the book sets out an alternative approach for dealing with breaches of insurance warranties and demonstrates that this would consistently deliver better outcomes than any of the existing attempts at reforming this area of the law. Providing an unprecedented multi-jurisdictional review of the law on insurance warranties and in particular the treatment of warranties in the Insurance Act 2015, as well as outlining an innovative and radical alternative approach to reform, the book will be of considerable interest and value to practitioners, academics and students, as well as to other common law jurisdictions contemplating reform of this area of the law.

Illegality in Marine Insurance Law is the first book to deal specifically with illegality in the context of marine insurance law. Previously, this issue has only ever been partially covered within analysis and criticism of Section 41 of the Marine Insurance Act 1906 and warranties. However, Dr Wang Feng goes much further than this by considering its impact on the common law relevant to marine insurance in many jurisdictions worldwide. The book addresses whether the existing law represents an accurate codification of the former authorities and whether Section 41 truly reflects existing legal principles. As well as this, the book examines how correctly to approach illegality within the context of marine insurance, considering the fundamental changes to the rule of breach of warranty introduced by the Insurance Act 2015. Of interest to academic researchers and practitioners in common law and civil law jurisdictions, this book provides rigorous analysis of the illegality issue and a conceptual approach for various approaches to reform marine insurance law. It is a unique and comprehensive guide to illegality in marine insurance law.

PREFACE. THE Author of this very practical treatise on Scotch Loch - Fishing desires clearly that it may be of use to all who had it. He does not pretend to have written anything new, but to have attempted to put what he has to say in as readable a form as possible. Everything in the way of the history and habits of fish has been studiously avoided, and technicalities have been used as sparingly as possible. The writing of this book has afforded him pleasure in his leisure moments, and that pleasure would be much increased if he knew that the perusal of it would create any bond of sympathy between himself and the angling community in general. This section is interleaved with blank shects for the readers notes. The Author need hardly say that any suggestions addressed to the case of the publishers, will meet with consideration in a future edition. We do not pretend to write or enlarge upon a new subject. Much has been said and written-and well said and written too on the art of fishing but loch-fishing has been rather looked upon as a second-rate performance, and to dispel this idea is one of the objects for which this present treatise has been written. Far be it from us to say anything against fishing, lawfully practised in any form but many pent up in our large towns will bear us out when me say that, on the whole, a days loch-fishing is the most convenient. One great matter is, that the loch-fisher is depend- ent on nothing but enough wind to curl the water, -and on a large loch it is very seldom that a dead calm prevails all day, -and can make his arrangements for a day, weeks beforehand whereas the stream- fisher is dependent for a good take on the state of the water and however pleasant and easy it may be for one living near the banks of a good trout stream or river, it is quite another matter to arrange for a days river-fishing, if one is looking forward to a holiday at a date some weeks ahead. Providence may favour the expectant angler with a good day, and the water in order but experience has taught most of us that the good days are in the minority, and that, as is the case with our rapid running streams, -such as many of our northern streams are, -the water is either too large or too small, unless, as previously remarked, you live near at hand, and can catch it at its best. A common belief in regard to loch-fishing is, that the tyro and the experienced angler have nearly the same chance in fishing, -the one from the stern and the other from the bow of the same boat. Of all the absurd beliefs as to loch-fishing, this is one of the most absurd. Try it. Give the tyro either end of the boat he likes give him a cast of ally flies he may fancy, or even a cast similar to those which a crack may be using and if he catches one for every three the other has, he may consider himself very lucky. Of course there are lochs where the fish are not abundant, and a beginner may come across as many as an older fisher but we speak of lochs where there are fish to be caught, and where each has a fair chance. Again, it is said that the boatman has as much to do with catching trout in a loch as the angler. Well, we dont deny that. In an untried loch it is necessary to have the guidance of a good boatman but the same argument holds good as to stream-fishing...
