Experience and issues arising from recent amendments to Insurance Law in England and Wales
Thursday 30 March (1100 - 1245)
European Regional Forum
The English and Scottish Law Commissions spent nine years considering reforms to insurance law. They sought to balance the rights of insurers and policyholders though a combination of the introduction of a duty of fair presentation and proportionate remedies for breach of the duty in the Insurance Act 2015. A webinar, available to all registered attendees at the conference, will provide a comprehensive guide to the changes to law. The session will start with a high-level summary of the key changes to the law which serves as an introduction to a panel discussion on how the market has reacted to the new legislation. It will also discuss the challenges identified to date and opine on whether the UK’s got it right.
