Dr Han Yongqiang, 'Insurer's Duty of Good Faith and Policyholders' Reasonable Expectations'

Dr Han joined the National University of Singapore Law School in August 2014 as a Postdoctoral Fellow. His current research focus on how the English insurance law's unreceptiveness to the doctrine of reasonable expectations might be at odds with actuarial principles and practices in the English insurance industry and the normative implications of such oddity.
