ILRG guest lectures

Insurance is in no small part a legal subject that develops with practice. There is a steady stream of case law and new standard contract terms forms, not to mention new forms of insurance such as recently insurance against cyber attacks. To help students gain insights into current trends and developments, the ILRG invites guest lectures by prominent academics and interesting practitioners for students.

In 2013, Mr Justice Bernard Eder held a guest lecture on fraudulent insurance claims, addressing notably the recent judgment in Versloot Dredging BV v HDI Gerling Industrie Versicherung AG (The DC Merwestone) [2013] 2 Lloyd’s Rep 131.

In early 2013, external ILRG member Professor Rob Merkin spoke to insurance law students about motor insurance.

In 2012, the undergraduate insurance law students had a guest lecture by Greg Pynt, a lecturer at the University of Western Australia and a barrister in Perth. He has over thirty years’ experience of insurance law and has written a textbook on the Australian Insurance Contracts Act 1984 (Cth). He spoke to undergraduate students about the approach of Australian law to utmost good faith and warranties.

Our external member Jonathan Goodliffe has now been a guest lecturer for three years running, speaking on the impact of financial regulation on insurance contract law. His talk is accompanied by an interactive problem solving session.
