Abstract—P&I insurance means that the shipowner pays the membership fee to the P&I Association according to the agreement in the P&I insurance contract, and the P&I Association provides protection and compensation for the potential liability risks, possible losses related to the operation and the expenses arising therefrom of the ships owned or leased or managed by the shipowner. P&I insurance is a special kind of marine insurance. With the increase of marine risks and the development of marine liability system, its position in marine insurance is increasingly prominent. However, China’s legislation on P&I insurance is still not perfect, and there are still gaps in the legal adjustment of P&I insurance. In view of this, based on the perspective of the legal adjustment of marine P&I insurance contract and the prospect of future norms, this paper conducts research, hoping to deepen the research in this field by combining the legislation and practice of common law countries and the basic theory of marine insurance contract law, so as to make the relevant legislation in China more perfect.

Keywords—P&I insurance, legal adjustment, maritime law, law of insurance
