Book cover in blue with skyscrapers outlined in whiteOn 10th September, Dr Franziska Arnold-Dwyer (Commercial Law PhD, 2017), CCLS Lecturer in Insurance Law, presented her new book, Insurable Interest and the Law (Routledge, 2020), in which she re-examines the role of the doctrine of insurable interest in insurance law and market practice in the 21st century. In her book, Franziska argues that, far from being obsolete, the doctrine of insurable interest is supported by old and new rationales and, rather than rejecting the doctrine, it should be recalibrated to afford better pre-contractual transparency as to the suitability of the policy to the proposers’ interest in the subject-matter to be insured.

After the presentation, Dr Arnold-Dwyer hosted a panel discussion with Dr Terry O’Neill, insurance law expert and consultant at Clifford Chance LLP and Professor James Davey, Professor of Contract and Commercial Law at the University of Southampton.
