The aim of the course is to provide an understanding of the legal environment in which the important commercial practice of insurance operates. The course analyses the relationship between the parties to an insurance contract (the insured and the insurer), examines how the contract is formed and how it operates, and considers the legal issues that surround the claims process. The course also considers the legal issues that arise when an insurance contract is formed through an insurance broker or other intermediary. Finally, the course considers the regulation of insurance business, i.e. the legal relationship between the firms and individuals operating in the insurance market and the government agencies and industry bodies that are responsible for supervising it.
