Recent Developments in Insurance Law - 2019 Update
This webinar examines recent cases and proposed reforms that have important implications for insurance practitioners and their clients.
Over the past year the courts have construed a variety of policies from project insurance to motor insurance. Amongst these was an appeal concerning a permanent health insurance policy, which is a type of policy that the Court of Appeal rarely has cause to consider.
Alison Green will consider these decisions along with the enlarged jurisdiction of the Financial Ombudsman Service over insurance issues and the Law Commission’s consultation on insurable interest.
