Welcome to the BILA research pages where you can find a library of useful resources on insurance law.  From this page you can read the current edition of the BILA Journal and also search the BILA Journal archive, containing articles dating back to the Journal’s launch in 1964.  

You will also be able to search recent cases published in the Lloyd’s Law Reports and search for key insurance legislation and recent enforcement cases that may be of interest to insurers.  Whenever possible we will also include publications on topics of interest produced by our members, whether individual or corporate. 

In order to make it easy to locate Lloyd’s documents of importance we also have a small repository of materials relevant to the Lloyd’s market.  

We endeavour to make these pages as useful as possible to practitioners, academics and anyone else with an interest in insurance law. 

If you would like to contribute to these resources please contact journal@bila.org.uk.


The BILA Journal was first launched in 1964 and has been published regularly since then.  All previous editions of the BILA Journal are available to members in our archive.


There are only limited statutes of significance to insurers in the United Kingdom.  As a useful resource tool for research we have included a list of the main sources of insurance law in the United Kingdom.


The British and Irish Legal Information Institute (Bailii) contains British and Irish case law & legislation, European Union case law, Law Commission reports, and other law-related British and Irish material.  Certain recent cases published in the Lloyd’s Law Report are also available on our website.


We will publish details of new titles of interest to insurance and reinsurance law practitioners from time to time.

From time for time we will include details of interesting FSA enforcement actions which have specific relevance to the insurance sector.

Lloyd’s documents of interest

Many of our members will have a particular interest in the Lloyd’s market.  In order to ensure that documents of interest are available, we have included links and some uploads to those materials which are likely to be relevant to research.
