Going walkabout with Australian insurance law: The Australian experience of reforming utmost good faith

Lewins, K.ORCID: 0000-0001-5276-2777 (2013) Going walkabout with Australian insurance law: The Australian experience of reforming utmost good faith. Journal of Business Law, 1 . pp. 1-22.

Abstract

England and Scotland are currently involved in an ambitious and ongoing process of reform of insurance law. About 30 years ago Australia underwent a similar process. This article takes the opportunity to throw a spotlight on the Australian reforms, particularly in relation to the obligation of utmost good faith owed by both parties. It provides a report card as to how the proposed reforms have played out in the courts, particularly in relation to late payment of claims, and fraud.
