Insurance Act of 1906 (UK)
Lex Mercatoria. Professors Healy and Sharpe
have described the relationship between the United Kingdom's Marine Insurance
Act and the American law of marine insurance as follows: "While Congress
has not restated the marine insurance law of the United States, the U.K.
law of marine insurance was codified in 1906, when the Marine Insurance
Act became law. Of course the Act does not apply of its own force in the
United States, but U.S. and U.K. courts alike have recognized the desirability
of uniformity in the law of marine insurance . . . . While some differences
still exist, a considerable degree of uniformity has in fact been achieved,
so that the Marine Insurance Act is not only a codification of U.K. law,
but can be read as a reasonably close restatement of the still-decisional
U.S. law of marine insurance." Healy & Sharpe, Cases and Materials
on Admiralty 802 (3d Ed. 1999).
