Elgar Research Handbook wins the BILA Book Prize

BILA book prize winners

Co-editors Julian Burling and Kevin Lazarus with Alison Green and Tim Hardy from the BILA Charitable Trust

Congratulations to our editors Julian Burling, Barrister at Serle Court (and formerly Counsel to Lloyd’s), and Kevin Lazarus, Solicitor at Lloyd’s, who have won the prestigious British Insurance Law Association (BILA) Book Prize for their Research Handbook on International Insurance Law and Regulation.  The book is part of Elgar’s series of Research Handbooks in Financial Law, edited by Rosa Lastra, Queen Mary, University of London.

Produced in association with Lloyd’s, the Handbook draws on the expertise both of academics and practising lawyers. Containing 30 comprehensive chapters, it provides in-depth studies on key areas, such as the role of international organisations, the judicial interpretation of insurance contract clauses and transnational regulatory recognition. It also provides thorough introductions to important jurisdictions, including the EU, US and Japan as well as focusing on newly emerging economies such as China and Brazil. Specialist topics covered include regulation by and of Lloyd’s, the tort of bad faith in the US, microinsurance and takaful insurance.

As Kevin Lazarus explains,

“Over 50 people contributed to the 30 chapters in this book and it is great that their hard work has been recognised. Law is relevant to everything that happens in the insurance market but clearly much of it is quite complex. We worked hard to make this book a good entry point for topics that are otherwise difficult to access”.

The annual prize is awarded to the author (or joint authors) of a published work constituting, in the opinion of the Trustees of the British Insurance Law Association Charitable Trust, the most notable contribution to literature in the field of law as it affects insurance.

BILA draws together insurance professionals, legal practitioners and academic lawyers within its membership.  It is also the British Chapter of Association Internationale de Droit des Assurances (AIDA).
