Abstract/Summary

This new edition of Sutton on Insurance Law makes a welcome return to the Thomson Reuters insurance practitioners’ library in 2014. The 4th edition builds on the authority and reputation of earlier editions of Sutton while covering the sweeping Australian developments in legislation, regulation and case law since the last edition was published in 1999. As with previous editions, the text contains discussion of the most important English and Australian cases, thereby emphasising that the Insurance Contracts Act 1984 (Cth) is far from a comprehensive code and that many issues of principle as well as of interpretation remain firmly within the province of the common law. The partnership of Professor Robert Merkin and Ian Enright, under the Honourable Michael Kirby’s consulting editorship, gives authoritative structure and detail to this account of modern Australian insurance law. The background and credentials of the authors infuse the work with insights into Australian issues from a contrast and comparison of current Australian and English law. The ordered structure reflects the issues that arise in a modern insurance contract, integrating legislation, regulation and case law around current commercial issues.
