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.

A sharp, informed and thoroughly practical guide to contemporary and developing issues relating to sea pollution, prepared by leading academics and practitioners with everyday hands-on experience. Pollution at Sea focuses on a number of the vital private law issues – compensation, insurance, contract and tort – thrown up by contemporary developments in the law of pollution. The book also intends to offer a critical analysis on emerging public law concepts, such as the legal position of seafarers from the perspective of criminal law in cases of pollution and the impact of port state control as a pollution control mechanism. Pollution at Sea is divided into three parts: 1. Private Law Liability Regimes 2. Rights and Liabilities of Particular Parties 3. The Impact of Public Law on the Actors Concerned In part 1; various liability regimes are dissected, including those which have been under the spotlight in recent years. This section has particular international appeal, and many of the regimes discussed are based at least in part on international conventions, agreements or practices. In part 2; the impact of pollution at sea on third parties is considered, with respect to the legal position of parties that might be perused either by the victims of pollution incidents or in some cases by the parties liable by way of a recourse action. Finally in part 3; recent relevant developments, particularly in the realm of public law are covered.

Key Divergences Between English and American Law of Marine Insurance

A Comparative Study

From the time of Elizabeth I in the second half of the sixteenth century, London has dominated the marine insurance markets. This led the English to develop a law of marine insurance as well. A Chamber of Assurances was established in England in 1575, and the law of marine insurance, rooted in custom, developed through the cases decided by the courts. In the United States, marine insurance underwriting began in the eighteenth century, although British firms continued to dominate. The American law of marine insurance took its cue from English law; there was no American statute, and English legal precedents were cited routinely in American courts. For fifty years after the English law was codified in the Marine Insurance Act 1906 (MIA), it could truly be said that there was a unified Anglo-American law of marine insurance, and that English law was part of the general maritime law of the United States. The unity of the Anglo-American law, which was so beneficial to the international marine insurance industry, was broken abruptly in 1955 by the decision of the United States Supreme Court in Wilburn Boat v. Firemans Fund Insurance Co., a case that created controversies over the uniformity of the law that have yet to subside. The purpose of this work is to explore the extent of the breakdown of the uniformity of the law and to point to its cure.
