The Law Commission has been considering reform of English insurance law since 2006 This reflects the many comments made both judicially and extra-judicially over recent years. We now have reform in consumer insurance set out in the Consumer Insurance (Disclosure and Representations) Act 2012. Reform in commercial insurance has yet to come. The courts however have been active (and at times surprising) in their contribution to reform.
This seminar looks at the latest cases affecting this important subject area and assumes that delegates have a working acquaintance with the basics of the subject.
