This publication summarises the essential elements of a contract of insurance. It looks at the ways in which public liability may be incurred and how the policy should be structured to respond to this liability.

The book analyses the main policy clauses (recital clause, operative clause and proviso clause) and also looks in detail at exceptions, policy conditions and extensions to basic policy cover.

The appendices contain a number of public liability insurance policy wordings and summarise relevant case law.
